Miami (Fla.) soccer club MSC Miami has been called “blackout” after a game on Oct. 5 against the Tampa Bay Rowdies.
The match, played at Sun Life Stadium, was postponed after two fans died in the aftermath of a stampede and a mass brawl.MSC Miami’s team captain, Christian Mihajlovic, said the club’s fans in the stands during the match were not in the dark.
“They were in the darkness, so we couldn’t see their faces,” Mihjlovic said.
“We had to get to the pitch and they were on the ground in front of us, but we were able to get them out of there and away from the fans.”
Mihajjovic said he wasn’t aware of any other clubs in the area that were experiencing similar blackouts.
He said that was because of a security plan that was implemented during the season.
“We’ve never had anything like this happen before,” Miskajlica said.
“The stadium is not dark, and we don’t need a light that’s going to be turned on at 6 p.m. to see the fans that are there.
We don’t have that, we’re in the blackout.”
