In Chapter XI: "It was magic" former community relations coordinator and "team mom". Dona Cardoza shares her experiences from all four years with the Miami Fusion!
Dona shares what it was like working for the Fusion for all four of those years and how she ended up working for the team simply by being across the hall from their offices 25 years ago!
Dona shares her passion for the team, what it meant for her to invest in the guys' lives, and her perspective on what the legacy of the Miami Fusion should be.
In 2001, despite putting together one of the best seasons in MLS history (at that point and arguably since), MLS made the decision to fold both the Fusion and their Florida neighbors, the MLS original franchise, Tampa Bay Mutiny.
While MLS soccer has returned to Miami in the form of David Beckham's Inter Miami, much has been discussed of "what could've been?" Had the Miami Fusion been allowed to stay and build. Indeed, what WOULD a Miami Fusion look like in 2023?
This podcast tells the story of the Miami Fusion through the voices of those who actually lived it. 25 interviews across 25 episodes charting the good, the bad, and the unbelievable.
