Garber Urges "Patience" With Chivas USA After Opener Draws Record-Low Attendance

MIAMI BLUES: In Miami, Michelle Kaufman reported there have been “no formal meetings” between Garber and the Dolphins’ ownership group, and there is “no imminent plan to bring a team to South Florida, although this market will remain in consideration.” MLS Exec VP/Communications Dan Courtemanche “dismissed any suggestion that Garber is pushing for Sun Life Stadium’s proposed $400 million worth of renovations, or using possible expansion as an incentive to drum up support from taxpayers.” Courtemanche said, “We have a good relationship with RSE Ventures (Ross’ group) through our commercial arm, Soccer United Marketing, but we have not had any formal discussions with RSE or the Dolphins regarding a future expansion team in Miami. We believe we will have an MLS team in South Florida someday, but our current focus remains on securing an expansion team for New York” (MIAMI HERALD, 3/5).
