Founded by two former University of Central Florida students, New Day Review is an independently owned, sports, entertainment and culture news outlet based out of Orlando, Florida.
The idea for NDR is simple. As former students of UCF and as residents of Orlando for approximately the past five years, we began to realize and appreciate a newfound sports culture. Not only is Orlando the home of an NBA team, but the City Beautiful is also one of the hottest destinations in American soccer with the arrival of Orlando City Soccer Club. Those two organizations, along with a plethora of other successful sports teams, are reasons enough to cover sports here.
NDR is also committed to making the city it covers a better place. As die-hard sports fans, we understood and experienced the impact sports had, have and will have on our lives. One of our goals is to create a philanthropic branch that provides underprivileged children with the opportunity of seeing their favorite sports heroes in action. For most, if not all low-income families, buying tickets to an Orlando City game, for example, is not a possibility. We want to make that chance a reality. Help us help them.
With that in mind, all of our efforts have so far been self-funded. Please consider donating to our GoFundMe page here. Any amount will help us add to the already-great content we have and allow us to achieve all of our goals.
