Plea from Miami soccer fan:

Hello South FL soccer fans! This is J from Miami,

I’m writing and posting this on as many south fl based soccer websites as I can find.  Like many of you out there I want a Major League Soccer team back in Miami.  I think it’s time for our South FL/Miami fans to make a big televised push for some major TV based publicity in bringing back MLS to Miami.  On June 10th there will be two Gold Cup matches played at FIU.  These are internationally televised soccer matches.

My wife and I have midfield tickets preordered for June 10th at FIU.  I have made a sign that reads “BRING MLS BACK TO MIAMI.”  Although we may not support the teams playing June 10th, imagine the message Miami soccer fans would get out to MLS (Don Garber) if we had loads of MLS supporting fans with similar signs.  We would also be showing the potential for fan support simply by the cameras catching images of a full stadium.

Although the US weren’t part of the matches played at FIU two years ago, we went to them anyway.  The stadium was packed; many people purchased tickets at the gate.  I believe it was nearly sold out, one ticket for two games brought in loads of fans, which is also why we went.

Let’s grab Don Garber’s attention once again!  Show your support for a Miami MLS future by going to the FIU based Gold Cup matches on June 10th with your signs and old Fusion jerseys ready!

Just so everybody knows, we will be making the trip to Tampa the next morning to support the U.S.  I will probably bring the sign to that match as well to show Garber we mean business (Miami fans will travel for good soccer too).  I’ve got midfield tickets to those matches also.

Please post this message on any south fl based soccer websites you know about, lets get the word out!!! See you at the FIU Gold Cup games!
