Little Haiti Soccer Park, also known as Emmanuel “Manno” Sanon Park, has been in the news multiple times in past year or so. Completed in 2008,Emmanuel “Manno” Sanon Park cost the city and Miami-Dade County $36.9 million to build.  Since its opening, there were occasional traveling soccer matches and intermittent pick-up soccer games. But for close to four years, until 2014 the park’s only consistent customer was the Little Haiti Optimist Club, which used the 15-acre park for American football games and practice sessions.

That changed this past April 2014 when Edison High School coach Gomez Laleau, Ransom Everglades coach Dave Villano, Miami mayoral aide Pat Santangelo, and other local soccer coaches like Samuel Prumier, as well as community leaders teamed up and formed Little Haiti FC forming Boy and girls soccer teams.

Funds are also being made available for a secondary soccer field on the East side of the soccer venue.
