Field Day FAQ

FAQ

Most frequent questions

I want to play but I don’t have a team. What are my options?
  • You can be a spectator! Spectators get to hang out and watch the competitions, play tabletop games in the Hospitality Zone, enjoy food and drinks from the vendors, visit the booths and photo opps, etc. 
  • Since this is our first year doing Downtown Orlando Field Day, we don’t have a way for single players to join incomplete teams but we expect to have that option next year.  
Do we have to have at least 6 players to sign up?

No. We recommend having 6 to 8 players, but you can play as long as you have at least 5 and a max of 10 players on your team. The more players you have, the less each individual will play.  

Do I need to complete my roster/game assignments when I register a team?
  • No, you can register a team and complete your team roster later. You will have until 10/31/23 to edit the team roster. 
Can I make someone else the Team Captain?

Yes. You can edit your team’s roster and re-assign the Team Captain from your Participant Dashboard.

Will there be alcohol at the event?

Yes. Each participant that is 21+ will get 1 free drink thanks to our sponsor City Beverage. The Dr. Phillips Center will have a full bar offering alcoholic drinks to people who are 21+. ID required for purchase.

Will there be food at the event?

Yes. We will have several food trucks and pop-ups offering a wide range of options for purchase. Vegan and gluten free options will be available. 

What do we get if we win?

The winning team takes home a giant honorary “key to the city”. They’ll also receive a Downtown Orlando Goodie Basket, and of course, bragging rights! 2nd and 3rd place winners will receive Downtown Orlando Goodie Baskets as well. 

How are winners determined?

We have an official Scorekeeper provided by OUT Sports League tracking every team’s outcomes throughout the event. The top 2 teams will go head to head in a game of Tug-of-War to determine the ultimate Downtown Orlando Field Day winner. 

Do player need to be athletes?

No. While it might help to have a couple athletic-adjacent people on the team, our games are focused on team building, nostalgia, and fun more than athleticism.

Will accommodations be made for players with disabilities?

We will accommodate players with disabilities to the best of our abilities. Please email us at hello@citydistrictorlando.com so we can understand your needs and discuss accommodations.

Can I Volunteer for the event?

Yes! We have a variety of roles available. Check out the options on the Volunteer page and let us know if you have any questions. hello@citydistrictorlando.com

I’d like to attend the event as a spectator, but I am tight on funds. Can I still come?
  • Yes. Field Day is an annual fundraiser for City District which is why we are charging spectators, but we don’t want anyone to be left out because of financial constraints. Send us an email and we will work something out so you can attend. hello@citydistrictorlando.com
Will there be medical professionals on site in case I injure myself?

Yes. We will have an EMT on site, but our activities are designed to limit risk of injury. Please wear athletic clothing and shoes if you are participating in the field games.

What should I bring to the event?

Make sure you have a photo ID and a form of payment for the food/drink vendors if you plan to purchase items. If playing in the games we recommend wearing comfortable clothing and close-toed shoes you can run in. If you are one of the Teammates completing the O’Town Obstacle Course, we recommend wearing leggings or pants for the inflatable obstacle course.

What is the check-in process

Teams are encouraged to pick up their bags which contain their schedule and bib numbers PRIOR to the event. They can be picked up at CityArts Cafe from 12pm to 3pm from Tue Oct 24 to Thu Oct 26. We will have check-in tables set up at the event to hand out bags to teams who couldn’t meet us on a pickup day. All players will scan a QR code to check in at the event so we know who has arrived.

What happens if my team is late?

If your team misses your scheduled time for playing, you will not be able to make it up. We recommend arriving in time to watch the Welcome Speeches at 3:30 PM. The check-in tables open at 2:30 PM. Remember to make time for parking and walking to the Seneff Arts Plaza (AKA the front lawn of the Dr. Phillips Center).

Where should I park?

There are five parking garages within 2 blocks of the Seneff Arts Plaza (the lawn in front of Dr. Phillips Center). The City Hall and SunTrust garages are the closest.

What should I wear?

We enourage teams to wear matching outfits, closed toe sneakers (no cleats), and comfortable sport wear.
