Social Special: Orlando Hand Delivers Their 2016 Copa América Bid

When Orlando City Soccer Club, the Central Florida Sports Commission and the City of Orlando began to put together their pitch to become a host city for the Copa America Centenario USA 2016 tournament - they didn't think small.

Instead of shipping a flash drive and a folder of corresponding documents, they combined to create these beautifully etched aluminum casings to hold an the equally amazing aluminum bound bid inside.


That wasn't the end of it, though. Rather than drop these peices of art off at the post office, two of Orlando City's standout academy players were asked to hand deliver the bid to the US Soccer Federation's offices in Chicago. Gorka Aperribay (U-18 Academy) has commited to play at UCF and Natalie Fouque (U-18 ENCL) who commited to play at Villanova represented the city and the club with pride as they carried the bids throughout Chicago before submitting them at the end of the day.
