Orlando Becomes First City to Join Alliance
"When reviewing markets for The Alliance, we focused on cities who were looking for more football. Orlando has already proven to be a passionate, loyal and engaged fan base that loves the game, yet they don't have a professional football team to call their own.
Well, we're not just bringing professional football to town, we're bringing the Head Ball Coach with us, a true Florida legend." -- Charlie Ebersol, co-founder and CEO, The Alliance.
"What first captured my attention was Charlie and Bill's commitment to putting top-flight, professional football on the field and creating a true alliance between fans, players and the game. The Alliance offers a unique opportunity to get back into coaching, this time for a spring season, and work closely with hungry, talented athletes looking to begin, revive or extend their professional careers.
The fact I can do this in Orlando makes it that much sweeter. I'm fired up and ready to go." -- Steve Spurrier, Orlando Alliance head coach
