Viva Futbol!

Miami FC es el único equipo de fútbol profesional del Sur de la Florida, which is odd, considering the sport’s global popularity and the fact that the majority of the city’s residents are Latin. In any case Miami’s USL First Division team is back for another season, kicking things off April 15 against the Virginia Beach Mariners. In the meantime, the team’s fan-friendly approach continues.

For one thing the home field, Tropical Park Stadium, has been recapped (still Bermuda grass). All fans will be seated on one side of the stadium to “concentrate that energy,” as a team official puts it. The team is also offering a half-dozen free scrimmages, including today’s 4:00 p.m. game against the USA Under 17 team. Tickets for the regular season are already on sale at ten dollars for adults, and five for kids under twelve years old. Tix for all fourteen home games and three “friendly” games are $120 for adults and $60 for kids — a decent deal to support our local squad.
Sat., March 31, 4 p.m.
