Atletico Nacional from Colombia took home the victory of the Florida Cup 2018. But before heading back home, soccer players from around South America and Europe took advantage of their trip to enjoy our parks, attractions and hotels.

And we did what we do best – show them a good time! We started by rolling out a turf carpet lined with many of our characters to give them an official welcome to Universal Orlando Resort. From there, players, team ambassadors and fans explored Universal Studios Florida, Universal’s Islands of Adventure and our hotels. Take a look!

Here are the Team ambassadors representing the eight teams playing the Florida Cup get a warm welcome to Universal.
