In Chapter XXII: "It was painful" former Miami Fusion owner Ken Horowitz shares his side of the story.
Ken shares how he came to own & start the Fusion 25 years ago and what caused him to make the decision to fold the Fusion after the 2001 season.
Ken takes care to set the record straight about why the Miami Fusion folded, what led up to the folding, and how some of those issues still exist today.
I cannot thank Ken enough for taking the time to sit down and record his part of the history of the Miami Fusion.
In 2001, despite putting together one of the best seasons in MLS history (at that point and arguably since), the decision was made to fold the Fusion.
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.
