Orlando soccer stadium renamed in naming rights change

The stadium that is home to Orlando City SC and the Orlando Pride has been renamed as part of a new naming rights agreement.

On Thursday, Inter&Co and the soccer teams announced a new, long-term agreement to name the venue Inter&Co Stadium, replacing Exploria Stadium, which held the name for five years. The change comes just under a month after the Kia Center announced its new agreement to take over the naming rights of the former Amway Center.

“It’s only fitting that as we enter our 10th season in MLS here in Orlando and ninth in the NWSL, that we would partner for the next decade with a global company, not only committed to our community, but with a shared vision for the future,” said Chairman Mark Wilf about the change.

With the move, Inter&Co becomes the first financial institution with Latin American roots to own naming rights on a stadium in the United States. In September, the company became the official financial institution of both of Orlando’s professional soccer teams.

According to a statement issued by the teams, the stadium is currently undergoing an enhancement project that will bring more technology offerings to the venue.

Upgrades will include five million new LED pixels, a state-of-the-art video board, new fascia LED throughout the bowl, a 16’x9’ LED wall in the West Club, and over 200 new TV monitors throughout the suites, premium spaces, concession stands and lower-level concourse.

Additionally, visitors will have access to interactive concourse displays, and the facility will provide Wi-Fi 6 and 6E, as well as 5G antennas for increased cell phone coverage.

Inter&Co Stadium will officially re-open to the public on January 27, when Orlando City SC will host a preseason FC Series friendly against Brazil’s Clube de Regatas do Flamengo.

“By putting our name on the stadium, we are making a pledge to the Orlando community,” said João Vitor Menin, CEO of Inter&Co. “We believe in the transformative power of financial education and technology to unlock possibilities, and we’re here to do that for each and every Central Floridian.”
