Who Is The Dade Brigade?
- Updated: April 28, 2016
“At a football club, there’s a holy trinity: the players, the manager and the supporters.”
– Bill Shankly
Soccer is much more than just a sport. Your club is a part of your community, a member of your extended family. It’s where the supporters act as the Twelfth Man and can make the difference between a win and a draw; where your passion, chanting, flag-waving, and singing makes the taste of victory that much sweeter, or helps ease the bitter taste of defeat.
As the official supporters group for the Miami FC, Dade Brigade is about one thing:
ULTRA FIDELIS – The most faithful.
Regardless of the outcome, we are responsible for fostering an atmosphere that is welcoming and entertaining for our fans and intimidating to the away supporters. We seek to create a memorable atmosphere where the home ground is our fortress and to the visitors the stuff of nightmares.
Dade Brigade is a passionate group of supporters with a fiery desire to support this sport, our city, and our club. Our passion for our team and community is not only reflected in the stands but throughout our charitable events and activities. As a soon-to-be non-profit supporters club, we will be fiercely committed to giving back to our community and lending our resources to the charities and organizations that benefit the people of Miami.
Membership is open to anyone who wants to STAND, CHANT, and SUPPORT our Miami FC from the Brigade End. We look forward to welcoming those with a similar passion for soccer, Miami, and our young club into our ever-expanding family. Together we will push Miami FC to new heights.
Membership benefits include: discounted season ticket prices in the Brigade End, a 2016 Membership Package including: a t-shirt, scarf and a membership card (which will earn you discounts at various local retailers/bars/restaurants.) Additionally, all members will receive discounts on away trips (travel/lodging,) Miami FC related events and merchandise.

Founded in 2015, the Miami Football Club (Miami FC) is the result of a partnership between Italian footballing legend Paolo Maldini and sports-media rights mogul Riccardo Silva. Maldini played in over 600 matches for AC Milan, earning 126 caps for the Italian national team, and 26 trophies, including the Champions League, Serie A, Coppa Italia, and the FIFA Club World Cup.
The team will be coached by Alessandro Nesta – a former teammate of Maldini’s and a legend in his own rite of Italian clubs Lazio and Milan. A former centre-back considered one of the best defenders in the game’s history, Nesta holds several trophies as well and formed a part of Italy’s World Cup-winning squad in 2006.
The Miami FC’s inaugural season will begin April 2nd.
