Statement from Orange County Mayor Jerry L. Demings | June 16, 2022

Mayor Demings' Seal“While disappointed, I am proud of the tremendous effort our local organizing committee poured into our World Cup proposal over the past five years. Collaboration, inclusion and innovation were at the forefront of this extremely competitive bid that our committee executed. It was beyond impressive and this experience will benefit our community for years to come as we continue to welcome major marquee world-class events to Orange County.”

– Jerry L. Demings, Orange County Mayor
