FCB Miami: Future Home

After Kartik Krishnaiyer and I recently spent the day at GolTV studios, we decided to make a stop at the future home of FCB Miami on the campus of Florida International University in west Miami.

We wanted to see for ourselves how the stadium looked and how it compared to the home of the last Major League Soccer team in South Florida, Fort Lauderdale’s Lockhart Stadium.

Here’s the video tour of what we found:

    Interesting video. Thanks for posting that. The new stadium looks OK,
    but wouldn't the Orange Bowl site be a better location for an MLS team?
    It's more centrally located. If Barcelona wants to get into MLS so badly,
    they should build a new stadium at the Orange Bowl site.

    This is a great new site…

  3. Franco says:

    Not that much of a stadium for a MLS club, and especially for Barcelona. Building a new stadium would really define a cleare committmen for the future by both Barça and Claure.

  4. kkfla737 says:

    Yes, the OB site I believe would be better. Actually much better.

  5. DCCavalier says:

    If there is to be a FCB Miami, then they would be better off using Lockhart as a temp site until they build their own stadium. If FCBM is to play at FIU's American football stadium, and make no mistake, that is what it clearly will be starting August of every MLS season, the true soccer/football fans that FCBM would be attempting to attract will be turned off by line markings of a football field no to mention a place that is not really all the convenient to get to.

  6. Horhay says:

    FIUs stadium is right off Florida's Turnpike and since its small the traffic wouldn't be too bad. The key is the land where the Orange Bowl (RIP) used to be. Hopefully the Marlins will relocate and a soccer stadium will be built on the old Orange Bowl site. if that happens FCB Miami can really take off
