Happy Holidays!

I hope your end to 2023 has been fantastic!

Even though this series technically wrapped up with Chapter 25, it still felt as if there was one more episode which needed to be released.

At the end of every episode, I asked my guest 2 questions:

1. What is the legacy of the Miami Fusion, to you?
2. What do you want new fans of MLS to know about the Fusion?

For this "epilogue" of the series, I mashed together everyone's responses to send us out of 2023 in style.

Enjoy!

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.
