January 21st is a date linked with various historical events.

On this date in 1793 Louis XVI was sentenced to death by guillotine.

On this date in 1981, the iconic DeLorean DMC-12 began production. 

On this date in 1999, 4300 kilograms of cocaine were intercepted by the "Coast Guard."

In 2011, the Iron Lion Firm was established and this date was chosen to annually commemorate that day.


121 is the section we occupy on match days.  For many of us 121 is figuratively, and for some, literally tattooed onto us.  A humble group of people came together to create a vision of passionate support for our Orlando City Soccer Club and 5 years later that band of brothers has grown exponentially.

The passion extends beyond the reaches of the terraces, that initial vision is ever-expanding.  This group of brothers and sisters is essentially a family, and we have each other's backs during all times of need be they sorrowful or joyous.

I raise a toast in celebration and respect to my ILF family.  Onward and upward.
