Exclusive: Miami FC to play in 2009

Pro soccer will remain in Miami in 2009 … and in most likelihood, beyond.

Traffic Sports will announce Wednesday that the Brazilian-based company will allow Miami FC to participate in the 2009 United Soccer Leagues First Division season, preventing a Miami from all but officially becoming a professional soccer wasteland.

Despite an at-times lagging fan base and an uncertain stadium situation, Traffic Sports President Julio Mariz decided double down the company's bet on the team after visiting the region last weekend.

"Right now, it's one day at a time, it's one year at a time,'' said team president Aaron Davidson. "But we're committed to this season, and the likelihood of us staying here is greater than ever.''

More details to come.
