Miami FC will go bald for a sell-out

In an interesting attempt to shift tickets for their USL match against Puerto Rico Islanders, Miami FC have vowed to go bald if they get a sell-out. For every 500 tickets sold another member of the squad will shave their head.

Brazilian coach Zinho and club president Aaron Davidson have also vowed to lose their locks if enough tickets are sold for the 19 September clash.

Davidson said: “I am willing to shave off one of my most prized possessions – my hair – in return for a stadium filled with Miami FC fans.”

The club reckon the so-called Miami FC Challenge will demonstrate their passion for the game while also getting punters into the stadium.
