Team president Philip Rawlins tweeted out a picture of the section that feature rainbow rows in the middle of the stadium’s purple seats—there will also be a row left empty with missing seats to commemorate the victims.

This isn’t the first time Orlando City SC has recognized the deadly mass shooting. The team dedicated a match back in June to the victims where they donated $100,000 to the City of Orlando’s OneOrlando Fund and held a moment of silence mid-game.

The stadium is scheduled to open in 2017.
