Orlando City Soccer announced a permanent change to honor victims of the worst mass shooting in U.S. history.
In a live Facebook video yesterday, Orlando City Soccer Club revealed 49 rainbow-colored seats in a section of their stadium in honor of the 49 victims of the shooting at the Pulse Nightclub in June of last year.
Currently, the Facebook video has over a million views.
“Thank you Orlando City Soccer Club for this amazing, heartfelt, lasting memorial to our brothers & sisters of the LGBTI community!” said one Facebook user in the comments, with an accompanying rainbow flag emoji.
Departing President Phil Rawlins tweeted about the seats near the end of last November while they were being installed in the stadium.
“@OrlandoCitySC @ORLPride so happy to see our @pulseorlando tribute seats being installed #DefyExpectations,” he wrote on Twitter.
Stadium construction is set to finish by early March, gearing up for the team’s match against the New York City FC.
