Weekend of Soccer in South Florida: Gold Cup, Miami Kickers and Miami FC

Who said Miami was not a soccer town? You see games being played all over South Florida, but fans are known to be fickle and demanding when it comes to watching a game live. Well, this weekend they get a little of everything! Friday, Saturday and Sunday will have what I call "A little Soccer Heaven"!
Word has it the Miami Ultras will have a presence in all three events. Be sure to look for the guys in the scarves and say hello!

Gold Cup is coming to South Florida this Friday July 10 at Florida International University Stadium. It will be a double header that will see Costa Rica go against Canada at 7 p.m. and El Salvador vs. Jamaica at 9 p.m. For ticket information go to The Gold Cup site but hurry, the stadium can only fit about 20,000 people so tickets will go fast! For full coverage check out the Kartik Report.

The Miami Kickers FC continue to top the WPSL Sunshine Division. The Kickers traveled to West Palm Beach to take on Palm Beach United this past Friday, July 3rd. but lost their first game of the season, falling to United 3-2. Read more at the Miami Ultras site.
Come out and support the Kickers at their next home game this Saturday July 11th 7 pm at American Heritage High School in Plantation. Miami will take on the Clearwater Galactics as they look to remain leaders of their group.

Last but not least; lets get out there this Sunday July 12th as the Miami FC Blues will take on the MLS bound Vancouver Whitecaps at FIU Stadium. The game is set to start at 6 pm with an Ultras tailgate starting at 4 pm. The Beer at the tailgate is FREE! Yes, I said FREE! So get out there and support Soccer in South Florida!
