In sports staying healthy is key and on Monday Orlando City SC extended their long-time partnership with Orlando Health.

“There is no partner we’d rather have. Orlando Health has always shared our vision of bringing Major League Soccer to Orlando since day one,” said Orlando City President Phil Rawlins. “Not only are we securing a world-class healthcare partner, but we are solidifying a true partnership between two organizations committed to making Central Florida a better place.”

The partnership will now go further than just having Orlando Health on the front of the jerseys, as the medical facility will now be the official healthcare provider of the club for the 2014 season and beyond.

“Orlando Health has agreed to be the official healthcare partner for Orlando City soccer,” said Orlando Health vice president, Karl Hodges. “For not only next year but for years to come.”

Orlando Health will now be the club’s main sponsor as well as provide all the medical care for players both of the professional club and youth organization.

Other big news broke on Monday regarding Orlando City, this time about funding for their new stadium. The Osceola County Board of Commissioners approved $1 million in funding towards the club’s multi-purpose stadium which is set to be build in downtown Orlando.
