Miami Soccer Festival, Miami Ultras and the Food Truck Invasion!

The Miami Soccer Festival will be this weekend Saturday July 30th and Sunday July 31st. It's a non profit soccer event. All net proceeds are distributed jointly by co-organizers ‘Soccer 5 Foundation’ and ‘Miami Dade Parks Foundation’ to promote more spaces to play soccer and more places to learn soccer within our community. We hope a lot of people will get behind it.

Here is what you will be able to see and do:
*Meet Women's World Cup star and magicjack player Abby Wambach! She will be appearing at the festival, doing a coaching clinic with The Soccer 5 Academy and taking photos with fans on Sunday.
*Win a GoPro by taking part in the Miami Soccer Festival Crossbar Challenge
*The Fort Lauderdale Strikers will be present over the weekend. (They also play Saturday night at 7:30 PM at Lockhart Stadium in Fort Lauderdale)
*There will be a FIFA video game tournament on Saturday July 30th
*Listen out for us on Y100 where we have radio sports between 2pm-6pm over the next few days
*Tournament registration closes Thursday July 27 at 5pm - so REGISTER before it's too late
*Passback Initiative - They will be gathering used soccer gear and donating to places around the world -
*Club Donations - All youth teams that enter 5v5 are eligible to receive club donations. For every team a club registers, they will receive a $35 donation back to assist with their own programs / running costs or however they would like to utilize it.

Be sure to check out the schedule of games so you don't miss out. The format is similar to World Cup style. Group stages are mostly on Saturday, Knockout Rounds and Finals Sunday.
