Miami native, Chad Ochocinco (formerly known as Chad Johnson) is a supporter of the beautiful game here in the United States and as evidenced by the picture supports Miami's bid for the World Cup. The American Football star who plays for the Bengals as a wide receiver is also said to be a Fan of the Miami FC Blues!
In case you didn't know Chad changed his surname from Johnson to Ochocinco prior to the 2008 regular season to reflect his Bengals uniform number. More info HERE
Currently Miami's World Cup bid has picked up steam and has surpassed 9,000 votes, but we need your support to be one of the cities to host world cup games go to http://www.gousabid.com/city/local/MIAMI-FL and support Soccer in South Florida!
Meanwhile it looks like Miami FC has lost one of its most popular players, it is defender Zourab Tsiskaridze better known as "Zee" by the fans. Last week soccer guru and Miami Ultra Robert Scorca mentioned to me that he heard Zee was on trial with the Whitecaps and sure enough this week he was signed. We want to wish Zee luck with his new team and tell him to expect some heckling from the Ultras when he visits Southern Florida with his new team. More on this HERE
