It took a few days to figure out, but The Miami FC 2’s Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup journey will start at Tropical Park. Miami FC 2 and FC Miami City will play at Tropical Park Stadium on May 6 at 7 p.m.
After receiving permission from the United States Soccer Federation to participate in the 2018 Lamar Hunt U.S. Open Cup, The Miami FC 2 and FC Miami City of the Premier Development League will square off in a “play-in” cup match.
As you’ve heard Miami may not have a team in the “Pro” leagues this year but that does not mean that there is no soccer to enjoy throughout the Magic City. This season the hardcore soccer fan can take in as many as 19 regular season games between the months of April and July. Miami FC 2, Miami United, and FC Miami City will each have a home slate plus additional games that are played within a 45-minute drive.
It seems like there’s a lot of dust in the air surrounding the beautiful game here locally. While every other league’s schedule is still “under construction”, the PDL released their schedule recently. “PDL?”, you ask. Yes FC Miami City, the only club in the PDL from the magic city, will return to Tropical Park for the 2018 PDL season.
It’s hard to believe that South Florida is quickly becoming a breeding ground for championship soccer. We’ve talked at length of the current Miami FC season, and we are usually really good about discussing the play of Miami United. The one team we haven’t given you enough details on is FC Miami City.
