Miami FC make history by securing the 2017 NASL Fall Championship
On Saturday 28th October 2017, The Miami FC beat FC Edmonton 2-1 at Riccardo Silva Stadium, clinching the North American Soccer League (NASL) Fall Season Championship and thereby becoming the first soccer team in the history of the NASL to win a Spring and Fall Championship in a single season.
The Miami FC owner, Riccardo Silva said:
“I am obviously very happy with our achievements this season. I’m pleased for our fans, the players, the coach and all the staff connected with the club. We have come a long way in a short space of time. In just two short years we’ve won two Championships – the first ever team to do so in a season of the NASL – and this year we beat two MLS teams in the US Open Cup. I couldn’t be more proud of what everyone has achieved together”.
The Miami FC now enter the 2017 NASL Play-Offs, facing New York Cosmos on November 5th at Riccardo Silva Stadium. The teams will play for a spot in The Championship Final.
