BOCA RATON, FL — Soccer fans from all over South Florida are invited to Boca Raton FC’s National Premier Soccer League season opener on Saturday, May 5, against Miami United FC and join in on the World Cup fever with a sticker trading night at the stadium.
A staple in every World Cup, the sticker album has been a part of the World Cup tradition and Boca Raton FC is excited to join in on the fun.
Every fan who attends the match will be presented with a sticker album at the game, and before and after the game, fans are encouraged to bring their repeated stickers to swap with fellow collectors.
“We are so excited to kick off our season at home and have a sticker trading day at the same time,” said club president, Douglas Heizer. “The World Cup sticker album has been one of the marquee parts of the summer event and having an event at our home game has been something we’ve been looking forward to it for a while.”
Boca Raton FC is coached by former Miami Fusion star Jim Rooney. Rooney captained the Fusion from 1999 to 2001, leading the Fusion to the Supporters Shield crown in 2001 and the US Open Cup Final in 2000. Rooney was an MLS All-Star in 2001 and in total scored 21 times and notched 22 assists in an MLS career that spanned six seasons and playing for the MetroStars, Miami Fusion, and the New England Revolution.
