Lennar ChampionsGate to be the Home of the Florida Cup Trophy
Florida Cup Footgolf Tournament by Lennar at ChampionsGate Scheduled for January 6
ORLANDO, Fla. – Jan. 2, 2019 – The Florida Cup today announced that founding partner Lennar Homes has renewed as a primary sponsor of the annual, international event in Central Florida.
Lennar will once again be the headquarters of the Florida Cup in Orlando and will now also serve as the Home of the Florida Cup Trophy from Jan. 9 - 12, 2019. A social media campaign launched prior to the event will provide fans the opportunity to take pictures with the trophy and post them under appointed hashtag for a chance to win VIP tickets to the Florida Cup Finals on Jan 12. One winner will also get to walk out on the field with the Cup in the championship award ceremonies at Orlando City Stadium.
“Lennar has a long-standing relationship with the Beautiful Game here in Orlando,” said Brock Nicholas, president of Lennar Homes in Orlando. “We are thrilled to continue to support this great global event and create unique experiences for our customers and fans alike.”
“Lennar is a partner that shared our vision and believed in our project since day one. They have stuck by our side through the entire journey. In an event, you cannot always choose what happens. But you can choose who to have by your side,” said Florida Cup CEO Ricardo Villar. “Their commitment to the growth of the game and the focus of promoting Orlando through soccer is unwavering. We are honored to renew this partnership.”
As part of the partnership, Lennar will also host the third edition of the “Florida Cup Footgolf by Lennar at ChampionsGate” on Jan. 6. The event will welcome VIPs and global soccer personalities, including Brazilian National Team and Flamengo Legend Zico, fellow Seleção and Sao Paulo icon Denilson, as well as influencers such as Fred from the largest soccer YouTube Channel in South America Desimpedidos.
