Another charity match coming to Miami-Dade

Less than two weeks after a sparsely attended "legends" soccer match for South Florida underprivileged youths was held at FIU Stadium, word comes of a similar event headed for Miami-Dade -- albeit with the promise of active players, not ones who peaked during the Clinton administration.

New World Sports, founded by former Haiti national team coach Wagneau Eloi, and Miami-Dade Commissioner Dorrin D. Rolle Wednesday announced the creation of "World Charity Soccer," which promises to "bring together soccer greats from around the globe right here in Miami-Dade County for one week."

The all-star match will include, presumably, recognized names from Europe and the Caribbean. No specific names of players that have confirmed to attend were in the press release, although even those are no sure thing. (See: The meager turnout for the Legends Invade Miami match a week ago Sunday, in which the biggest stars all bailed, save for Carlos Valderrama.)

The release did not include specific dates for the event, just that it would be held in June. When we know more, so will you.
