It was the most highly anticipated matchup of the UPSL Florida South Division season so far. Undefeated and untied Florida Soccer Soldiers faced off with undefeated and untied Miami Sun FC.

We at Magic City Soccer love soccer in Miami-Dade County. We also love sweet swag with allusions to our hometown. That’s why we’ve created t-shirts and now a signature hat with our “Neon Nights” design for our supporters to rock. It’s very Miami, and it’s a hell of a lot cooler than an NPR totebag.
This lovely snapback will only put you back $30 (think of it as a donation to a worthy cause). If you’re interested in purchasing a hat, e-mail us at MagicCitySoccer.MCS@gmail.com and we’ll provide you more information. As always, thank you for your support and thanks for reading and listening!
