From top to bottom, Orlando City Soccer Club is one of the classiest organizations around.

They’ve proved it once again.

Following the tragic Pulse nightclub shootings in Orlando, Florida in June of this year which saw 49 people killed in the gay nightclub, Orlando City SC and the Orlando Pride will honor the victims in their new stadium which is scheduled to be open for the start of the 2017 Major League Soccer season.

The photo below shows seats designed in the Rainbow flag to represent the LGBT community, which have been installed in the venue.

Orlando’s new downtown home (just two blocks away from the Amway Center, home of the NBA’s Orlando Magic) has a 25,500 capacity and will host home games for both OCSC in MLS and the Orlando Pride professional women’s team in the NWSL.

This is a truly wonderful gesture.
