411: Everything You Should Know For #MIAvIND

Aug 12, 2017

Welcome Miami FC Faithful! We are home tonight as we host Indy Eleven on Mexican Heritage Night at Riccardo Silva Stadium at FIU!

The Orange and Blue owns a 3-1-1 all-time series lead over Indy, and Miami has won two straight over the Eleven. 

Highlights of the Night

You won't want to miss a minute of the action, so get to the stadium early for the Dade Brigade Tailgate Party in the East Parking Lot outside of Gate 5, which begins at 5:30 p.m. and will feature food from the Tacos The Fury food truck!

There will be pre-match performances from Mariachi Mi Mexico and Ballet Folklorico Miami, playing from 6:30 p.m. to 7:15 p.m.!

Be sure to get there early, because the first 2,500 fans into the stadium will receive a complimentary Miami FC Cap, courtesy of The CW South Florida! In addition, the first 350 fans will also get a Mini Mexico Flag!

Stay in your seats at halftime for the Golazo T-Shirt Toss and an on-field performance from Mariachi Mi Mexico!

For our 21 and over fans, you can delight in some craft beer at the Miami FC Craft Beer Garden. Happy Hour goes from 6:00 p.m. to 7:15 p.m., so be sure to arrive early and take advantage of the offer. For just $30, fans can enjoy the match with two complimentary beers from one of Miami's best local breweries, Concrete Beach.
