South Florida will not give up it's claim in obtaining the 20th spot for MLS expansion. Miami's Local Soccer Fan group the Miami Ultras have started a campaign to gain attention and find possible investors who believe in this market.
It begins with the launch of their very own website http://www.mlsmiamibid.com/
The Ultras are also reaching out through twitter ( http://twitter.com/mlsmiami ) and facebook ( http://www.facebook.com/pages/MLS-Miami-Bid/123889570963495
) So join these groups to be informed on the latest news concerning Miami's MLS bid.
But there is more... Selected pubs and bars throughout South Florida have come on board willing to support this cause and will cooperate by posting MLS Miami posters and fliers that will help gain awareness. These same bars and pubs will host World Cup matches and will be announced shortly.
To further the awareness campaign for the MLS Miami Bid, the Ultras will be passing out fliers and reaching out to the community at the MLS Futbolito tournament by asking folks to sign up for Miami MLS Season Ticket Dedications. A “season ticket dedication” is basically a pledge that if Miami does get a Major League Soccer team, you will buy season tickets. (It's only a promise) We need as many season ticket dedications as possible to enhance support for our case of getting an MLS team in the near future.
MLS Futbolito is the official 4 vs 4 tournament of Major League Soccer. It consists of a fun soccer tournament that involves 13 communities across the country. It is a day-long event which offers food, music and fun activities for the whole family. Miami's version of this event will take place at Kendall Soccer Park located at 8011 SW 127th Ave Miami, FL 33183. The event takes place this Sunday May 23, 2010 at 9 AM.
