Sun Life Stadium's Big-Game Future Uncertain After Marlins' Departure
Published August 4, 2011
THIS IS NO MARLINS GAME: In Miami, Michelle Kaufman reports last night's Chivas de Guadalajara-FC Barcelona match at Sun Life Stadium drew 70,080 fans, the "biggest crowd for a soccer game in state history." The previous high was a '94 FIFA World Cup match in Orlando. During the Herbalife World Football Challenge match, the stadium "could have been mistaken for Barca's Camp Nou Stadium" due to the "sea of Barca's maroon-and-blue striped jerseys, Latin music and largely Spanish-speaking crowd" (MIAMI HERALD, 8/4).
