Miami FC draw the bulk of their support from the suburbs in the south and west of Miami.
The closest team geographically is the Fort Lauderdale Strikers with games between the two sides often labelled the FL Clásico. Fixtures with the other two teams in Florida, the Tampa Bay Rowdies and Jacksonville Armada are also keenly contested. These four teams compete for the Coastal Cup over the course of the NASL season.
Dade Brigade are the official supporters group of Miami FC and they occupy the east stand of FIU Stadium which is known as the Brigade End for home games. They are named for Miami-Dade County. Also, it is a nod to Miami's Cuban immigrant heritage with part of Coral Way between SW 97th and 107th Avenues, which is very close to the stadium, being known as 2506 Brigade Boulevard.
