The LA KISS will join the rest of the Arena Football League in wearing an “ORL” helmet sticker in Friday and Saturday’s games in support of Orlando, Florida in connection with the mass shooting there that left 49 dead, the league announced.

There will also be a moment of silence before the opening kickoff of Saturday’s KISS-Tampa Bay Storm game in Tampa, Florida, and the league’s three other games Friday and Saturday.

The eight-team league includes a franchise in Orlando, the Predators.

“Together we mourn the loss of lives and injuries suffered in this horrific tragedy in the early hours of June 12,” AFL Commissioner Scott C. Butera said.

“We commend the heroic actions and courage of Orlando’s first responders, emergency teams, and government officials working diligently to overcome the horrible aftermath of this tragic event. Our deepest sympathies go out to the victims, their families and friends and the entire Orlando community.”
