ORLANDO, Fla. - Once Upon A Coconut, Orlando City SC and the Orlando Pride are excited to announce the local, Orlando-based company as a Proud Partner and the Official Coconut Water Partner of the Major League Soccer and National Women's Soccer League clubs, as well as INTER&Co Stadium. This collaboration marks a significant step forward in supporting not only the fastest-growing sport in the United States but also the vibrant local community of Orlando.

"We are beyond excited and deeply honored to embark on this partnership with Orlando City SC, Orlando Pride, and INTER&Co Stadium," said Orlando resident John Chiorando, co-founder and CEO of Once Upon A Coconut. "Soccer is more than just a game; it's a community, a passion, and a way of bringing people together. Our commitment goes beyond hydration; we are here to support the teams and their admirable endeavors within the Orlando community."

This partnership aligns with Once Upon A Coconut's dedication to promoting healthy lifestyles and community engagement. As the official coconut water partner, Once Upon A Coconut will be available for fans, staff and players to enjoy at INTER&Co Stadium and will actively support the Club's community initiatives.

"We are excited to welcome Once Upon A Coconut to our Brand Alliance partner family and we look forward to showcasing their refreshing products," Orlando City and Orlando Pride SVP of Brand Alliances Kelly Hyne said. "Their enthusiasm to help grow the sport of soccer and their commitment to the community mirror our values perfectly. We look forward to making an impact together."
