According to the Miami Herald South Florida fans can rejoice as Brazil-based owners of the team, Traffic Sports, will announce today that they have decided to continue playing in USL. A source indicated that the three-year-old club had enough support to stay afloat. Traffic president Julio Mariz was satisfied with the response and has decided to play the 2009 season as scheduled.
The Stadium where Miami FC will play has still not been decided but Lockhart Stadium in Fort Lauderdale might host some games. Other stadiums like FIU, Tropical Park and Ted Hendricks Stadium are other options.
In any case, Miami Fans need to support, follow and bleed "Blue" this year if they want this team to succeed and hopefully one day be part of Major League Soccer.
For those Soccer snobs out there that look down upon USL as a second rate league, read today's paper. There is a "little" team from Puerto Rico that plays in USL that just beat Mexican First Division Team Cruz Azul 2-0 and is one step from the CONCACAF Champions Final! The Islanders and the Montreal Impact went farther then any MLS team this year and clearly demonstrates the competitive level of play in USL.
I don't know about you guys but my happy Miami Soccer fan ass will be at every game this season! Just look for a loud bald guy wearing Blue, holding a scarf in one hand and a beer in the other amongst the Ultras.
Join me! Join the Ultras.
