Yes, soccer is back, this time in the form of the Miami FC, a team that has been trying to curry local favor since 2006. This season, the stakes are pretty high with Major League Soccer planning to expand even more for the 2011 season, perhaps a good showing in play and attendance would allow Miami FC to jump up a level to the MLS at some point. Thats already a reality for the Vancouver Whitecaps, Saturdays opponent at Lockhart Stadium, the site of many a raucous match in its day as home to the Fort Lauderdale Strikers and later the Miami Fusion. Lockhart has nary a bad sightline, but its on the smallish side. That said, it doesnt take a lot to get Lockhart rocking.
