Last week the Miami Ultras, South Florida Soccer supporters group began their MLS Miami Bid
campaign with the launch of the official website http://www.mlsmiamibid.com/ and attending MLS
futbolito in order to further the awareness campaign for the MLS Miami Bid. The Ultras passed out
fliers and asked folks to sign up for Miami MLS Season Ticket Dedications.

its street-level Futbolote Challenge at the Rose Bowl in Pasadena, California. The Futbol Fiesta

with legendary Mexican National Team soccer players such as Felix Fernandez, co-host of Univision's
sports program Republica Deportiva and Martin "El Pulpo" Zuniga and Alberto Garcia Aspe.
It was a tough Sunday in many ways for the Miami Ultras. Once again we were invited to attend
Univision's Republica Deportiva for the USA vs Mexico Gold Cup final. Everything was great,
confidence was high. The Mexican fans chanted their typical Mexican tunes while the Ultras began to
drown them out with our incessant USA!
The Miami Ultras appeared on Univision during the USA vs Brazil game and Republica Deportiva. It
was a fun event that also saw Miami FC players Danny Vasquez and Richard Perdomo interviewed by
Presidente Fernando Fiore.

Selected Ultras are to appear at Univision's studio address:
The Philadelphia Union introduced two new signings last week, Faryd Mondragon.and Carlos Valdes.
So far, Mondragon has been saying all the right things, emphasizing his work ethic, preparation,
and team spirit. He also seems like a character if his Republica Deportiva appearance and
interaction with fans are any guide.
