Miami Gardens Mayor Rodney Harris spoke with Sundial on Thursday to discuss the kind of recognition, media attention, and financial rewards the city hopes to receive for hosting an event of this magnitude. He emphasised the importance of the city receiving some love in contrast to broadcasters’ preference for highlighting Miami.
We’re glad to be seated at the table right now. The main thing I want to do as mayor is making sure Miami Gardens is represented at the table when big events are discussed or taken into consideration to take place here,” he said. “Because the event doesn’t take place in Miami; it takes place in Miami Gardens. Therefore, we must participate in all conversations and economic operations that concern our interests.
“The prospect excites us. And one of those exceptional occasions is FIFA. It is an internationally recognised event. We’ve reached a stage where we’ve become somewhat accustomed to handling these kinds of incidents. We now see that it will benefit not only Miami Gardens but also the area around us “said he. “We’ll see to it that,”
