There’s no denying the confusion and stress within each and every one of us about what the future holds. But if we’ve learned anything during our time spent apart, it’s that nothing can compare to sitting next to your favorite people, wearing your favorite jersey and watching your favorite team play right in front of your eyes.
We can’t pinpoint the day that all stadiums, ballparks and arenas will be open to fans. But we can promise you this: GO Sports will be working on behalf of our community, our partners, and athletes and fans everywhere, until that day comes.
In times like these, you realize how important it is to have great people standing with you. We would like to give a special thank you to our funding partners—the City of Orlando and Lake, Orange, Osceola and Seminole Counties, the Florida Sports Foundation, and our Regional Stakeholders, Corporate Partners, and Board of Directors—whose steadfast leadership and unwavering support makes all that we do possible.
We all believe in the power of sports to strengthen a community. Working through this crisis together, emerge stronger than ever.

GO Sports, in partnership with Orlando Venues, is leading a newly formed Best Practices Taskforce and Response Team focused on the health and welfare of employees, participants and patrons. In consultation with industry experts, the taskforce is developing operational guidelines and planning for the reopening of our region’s sports venues, arenas, stadiums and ballparks. The leadership team is mostly made up of venue operators and the teams and programs that play in the those venues from the across a four-county footprint (Lake, Orange, Osceola, and Seminole Counties and the City of Orlando). GO Sports has acted as an aggregator of Best Practices, Policies and Procedures from Sports Leagues, Teams and Venues from around the world.
