Help Bring Miami FC to FIU Stadium!

I'd like to echo the plea made by the Ultras site concerning the new possible stadium for Miami FC.
Miami FC is going to have some games played up in Lockhart Stadium (Broward County) and though I have no objections to this move I do believe the team should play most of the games in the Miami area.

From what we know Miami FC was close to signing a deal to play at FIU’s stadium until the now failed MLS Barcelona Miami bid stepped in and ruined that chance. Now it seems FIU doesn't want Miami FC to play in their stadium...
This move really doesn't make sense as FIU would benefit in many ways, let me explain.
Miami FC is owned by Traffic Sports, organizers of Copa America, Libertadores, among other tournaments. Traffic organizes many sports events in Miami and this means they will need a stadium for these games, which means more money will be going into the University who as it stands will have an empty stadium otherwise.

We need to knock some sense into FIU officials, let them know how we feel. We want Miami FC in FIU Stadium!
