Miami FC, Miamiâ€™s sole professional soccer club, is partnering with Equality Florida to host the first Miami FC Pride Night. Benefitting the victims of the Orlando tragedy, 50 percent of all ticket revenues from the July 16, 2016 game at Ocean Bank Field at FIU Stadium against the Jacksonville Armada will be donated to the Pulse Victims Fund.
Rallying South Florida to support the LGBTQ community, the first 5,000 fans in attendance will receive a Miami FC Pride Night branded bandana. The evening will also include a national anthem performance and a post-game concert by Nestor Torres, a Grammy Award-winning jazz musician, from Mayaguez, Puerto Rico.
â€œMiami FCâ€™s mission is to connect with Miamiâ€™s communities through the global language of soccer,â€ said Miami FC CEO Sean Flynn. â€œPride Night demonstrates our support for the LGBTQ community and we are confident South Florida will join us in this show of solidarity to give back to the victims of the Pulse Nightclub tragedy.â€
The July 16 game starts at 8:00 p.m. and is part of the Miami FCâ€™s home schedule for the second half of their inaugural season.
