Miami FC begins new life as Miami FC 2 draws in Magic City Clasico

Miami FC, one of three clubs still operating in the NASL when it suspended operations for the 2018 season, was the first team to begin a new life in the NPSL when Miami FC 2 opened with a 1-1 tie against Miami United FC in the Magic City Clasico.

Jaime Chavez scored with seconds left in the game to earn Miami FC 2 a tie. Miami United FC had led on a Victor Pelae goal early in the second half.

Miami FC, the 2017 spring and fall NASL champion, has kept more key players under contract than the New York Cosmos and Jacksonville Armada, which will also be fielding teams in the NPSL.

Besides Vincenzo Rennella and Chavez, who both came off the bench, Miami FC 2 started keeper Daniel Vega, defenders Mason Trafford, Rhett Bernstein and Tyler Ruthven and midfielder Dylan Mares.
