Happy Wednesday, Mane Landers! It’s testing season around here, so it’s weeks like this I’m grateful for Lion Links to condense the soccer news for me. Let’s get to them, shall we?

Win a Trip to See City on the Road

The club shared yesterday that fans could win a trip for two to see Orlando City SC play New England on July 27, sponsored by Fairwinds Credit Union. One grand prize winner will receive round-trip airfare, hotel accommodations for two nights, two tickets to the match at Gillette Stadium, and a $100 gift card.

Orlando Pride Friendly

The Pride will host Puerto Rico Sol FC from Puerto Rico’s top women’s league this weekend. Complimentary tickets are available now and can be found on their website.

USWNT Getting Their Bonuses

After filing a federal lawsuit citing gender discrimination and seeking equal pay to that of their male counterparts last month, the U.S. Women’s National Team will see a bonus after all. In a bold effort to show support in closing the gender inequality pay gap, Luna Bar has donated over $700,000 to ensure the 23 team members receive a sizable bonus, equaling that of the men. What say you? Is Luna Bar’s donation a solution to closing the pay gap? Is U.S. Soccer off the hook on this one?

SB Nation Announces New Women’s Soccer Site

More good news for women’s soccer! SB Nation announced yesterday, that it was launching a new site for all things women’s soccer. AllForXI.com will cover any and all news in the world of women’s soccer. With the launch so close to the World Cup and the start of the NWSL season, their focus will be largely on those, with a plan to expand.

OCSC Not the Only Team Trolling Inter Miami

Less of a troll and more of a legal battle, but still. Inter Miami, the team that isn’t yet, finds itself in a legal battle already with Football Club Internazionale Milano (Inter Milan). Inter Milan claims the use of “Inter” infringes on a trademark application. MLS maintains “inter” is short for international, and therefore fair game. Who do you think will win this one?

Free Kicks

That’ll do it for me today, all. I’m sad to report I won’t be at this weekend’s game as the Odyssey of the Mind team I coach has advanced to the state competition at UCF, and of course it had to be Saturday. Heartbroken to miss the match is an understatement. Enjoy the guys just a little extra for me, would ya?
