In Chapter IX: "It comes down to moments" current Chief Soccer Officer & Sporting Director of Inter Miami and former Miami Fusion player Chris Henderson shares his perspective playing for the Fusion during their magical Supporter's Shield-winning season back in 2001.
Chris shares what it was like going from winning the domestic double in Kansas City the year prior to heading down to south Florida with Preki!
He discusses some advice he received early on which clued him in to what may have been just around the corner at the end of the 2001 season, and how he was excited to return to south Florida with Inter Miami so he could bring his career full circle!
In 2001, despite putting together one of the best seasons in MLS history (at that point and arguably since), MLS made the decision to fold both the Fusion and their Florida neighbors, the MLS original franchise, Tampa Bay Mutiny.
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.
