WWE NXT Seating Options At Full Sail

The next WWE NXT Full Sail taping takes place on August 22nd, and once again we’ll be there live to share all of the exciting action with you.

WWE NXT
This picture of the WWE NXT set up in the Full Sail Live venue was take from General Admission section.

However, before we do that one of the things we’d like to share with you if you are deciding to attend is your options for seating. While there are only two types of seating at the arena itself, it is very important that you pick seating option which is right for you as your experience could depend on it.

WWE NXT Full Sail
Here is a look at the seating diagram for Full Sail Live for WWE NXT tapings. The General Admission seating are located in the black areas, the gold areas are gold circle seats, and the grey areas are the ramp to and the ring itself.

The first type of seating which you can purchase for just $10 is what is known as GA or (General Admission) seating.  These seats that line the walls of the arena not only provide an excellent view of the ring but the entrance ramp as well. One thing we should mention about these seats is that they are bleacher style seating so you will want to make sure that you arrive early to the Full Sail Live venue so that you can grab the seat of your choice. Also, make sure that you’re comfortable with sitting for long periods of time as many of the tapings can last up to four hours in length.

WWE NXT
This was our view from General Admission Section 101. It was a great view of Sheamus & Luke Harper!

The second type of seating that you can purchase, which are my own personal favorite, are what is known as “Gold Circle” seating. For $15 you can purchase these tickets that not only give you access to ringside seating, but also give you the ability to pick your seat before even entering the arena itself so you won’t have to worry about arriving early to grab a seat. The true advantage of purchasing these types of seats is that they are both comfortable and extremely close to the action. The only real decision you have to make is whether you want to sit ringside or entrance side. I have found the entrance side to be the best choice for me not only because you get to be on TV, but because it gives you the best view of the superstars themselves and they love to interact with you as they make their way down to enter the ring.

WWE NXT
This was our view of the ramp from Gold Circle Seating in Section 105. This is Bray Wyatt  #FollowTheBuzzards

For more information on how you can attend a WWE NXT Taping please be sure to visit their ticketing website which will show you a complete seating chart of the Full Sail Live Arena.

Orlando City Faces Italian Superclub AS Roma

Orlando City Faces Italian Superclub AS Roma

Italian giant to play in front of sellout at Barker Family Stadium in Winter Park, Fla.

Orlando City kicks off the 2013 season with an exhibition match against three-time Serie A Champion A.S. Roma on Wednesday, January 2, at Barker Family Stadium in Winter Park, Fla. The game, which was announced only a few weeks ago at City’s second annual fan forum, gives soccer fans in Central Florida a chance to see top-level talent play against their favorite hometown team.

“It’s obviously a fixture we’re incredibly looking forward to,” said Orlando City Head Coach Adrian Heath. “We realize we’re playing one of the biggest clubs in the world. We know it’s going to be extremely difficult, but we just want to give a good account of ourselves.”

Orlando City

Roma, who competes at the top of the Italian football league in Serie A competition, have won three Serie A championships with the most recent title coming in the 2000-01 season. The club participates in the same league as soccer-super giants like A.C. Milan, Inter Milan and Juventus. The team, which has USA national team star Michael Bradley on its squad, currently sits in 6th place in the Serie A table with a record of 10-2-6.

A.S. Roma recently agreed to a multiple-year sponsorship deal with Disney and their Wide World of Sports Complex in Kissimmee, Fla., with this the first trip to Orlando during their Winter break. Team officials agreed to hold a match before Roma’s flight later in the evening, with all ticket proceeds going toward the Orlando City Soccer Foundation. A 501 (c)(3) non-profit, the Foundation promotes exercise and healthy eating to the children and families in the Central Florida area and has done recent work in the Parramore area at the New Image Youth Center.

The Lions will be playing with a modified roster, fielding six-eight players from the 2012 regular season championship squad along with trialists brought on by Orlando City Head Coach Adrian Heath and Assistant Head Coach/Midfielder Ian Fuller. The preseason matches, Heath says, are a great opportunity to evaluate new talent.

“It’s given us an opportunity to invite one or two college graduates and see what they can do,” Heath said. “It’s something we can look forward to.”

About Orlando City Soccer Club:

Orlando City Soccer Club (OCSC) is a premier professional soccer sports franchise in the United States and is a member of the USL PRO. The Lion’s pro team has won two regular season titles and one postseason championship during their short time in Orlando. Outside of the pro squad, OCSC also has their own youth club, Orlando City Youth Soccer (OCYS) and a U23s team that participates in the PDL.

ORLANDO CITY SOCCER ANNOUNCES TICKET PRICES FOR A.S. ROMA MATCH

Proceeds from ticket sales benefit the Orlando City Soccer Foundation

At last week’s Fan Forum, Orlando City SC announced a highly anticipated friendly against Italian club A.S. Roma on January 2, allowing fans to experience top-flight soccer during the off-season.  The match will be held at the Cahill Sandspur Field and the Barker Family Stadium at Rollins College at 1000 Holt Avenue in Winter Park, with a 12:30 p.m. kickoff.

Today, the Lions announced tickets on sale, with prices ranging from $10 to $25, available solely on OrlandoCitySoccer.com.  Seating is extremely limited, and fans are encouraged to purchase tickets in advance.  100% of the proceeds from ticket sales will go to benefit the Orlando City Soccer Foundation.

“We are extremely proud to use this match as a platform to raise funds to benefit children in our community and further the sport of soccer, “ said Kay Rawlins, Director of Community Relations.

The Orlando City Soccer Foundation has recently held a series of soccer clinics with the New Image Youth Center on Parramore, also donating indestructible soccer balls to the children.

Roma announced a deal with ESPN Wide World of Sport Complex earlier in the year, making Central Florida their official winter training home. Team leaders also confirmed that the three-time Serie A champions will be bringing their “A” squad to Florida, making for an exciting matchup in Winter Park.
