When Jorge Mas said that we would hear news about the Miami MLS project soon, we were all hoping for it to be in the coming weeks after the announcement. We’re close to being four months away from the date that MLS declared Miami was officially getting a franchise and we’re starting to get some early clues as to how the franchise will honor the Magic City. While it’s nothing from the horse’s mouth, the connections are too big to ignore. Miami Freedom appears to be in the lead position.
Soccer fans in South Florida have an interesting event to look forward to next week. The SPORTELSummit Miami Beach will bring a number of important figures in the sports world together to discuss the issues of the day. However, there are some notable absences that leave participants and followers asking: What happened?
QUADPOD! Drew, Omar, Lee and Matt sit down to discuss all the pressing matters in local soccer, including but not limited to: MLS, NASL, NPSL, stadiums, colors and fruit. Join us, won’t you?
Another day down, another day closer to a significant moment for soccer fans of Miami-Dade County.
