As part of its annual Drive Pink Initiative to “drive out cancer” and raise awareness and funds to support lifesaving research, AutoNation will host a Drive Pink Night at the DRV PNK Stadium, home to Inter Miami CF, on Wednesday, October 20.
To celebrate Drive Pink Night, fans are encouraged to support the DRVPNK cause at the Inter Miami CF vs. Toronto FC match with opportunities to honor loved ones impacted by cancer by wearing pink that evening. The first 10,000 fans who enter the stadium will receive free pink rally towels. Inter Miami will also join AutoNation in recognizing four-time Indy 500 Champion Hélio Castroneves at the pre-game ceremony. Last May, Castroneves won his epic fourth race as a proud member of the DRVPNK AutoNation Racing Team.
With Dutchman Nick Marsman joining Inter Miami Cf from his previous club Feyenoord of Rotterdam was not the result he and the team expected at DRV PNK Stadium in Fort Lauderdale. Nick praised the fans “I thought they were great like even the whole game, they were great and they were supportive and like I wasn’t used to playing with fans anymore because we couldn’t last year in Holland so for me it was a great experience to have the fans back again in the stadium,” With this Sundays matchup against the Philidephia Union Marsman said “I hope they stay that supportive and give us the energy because we need it and we will fix things, we will get better. I think this has to be a wake-up call.” “Sunday we have to go again and we spoke a lot about it but I think now we have to show it on the pitch, we can speak many more but now we really have to act and so we have to stand together and get that win.”
The second half of Inter Miami CF's home game against CF Montréal was delayed in the 47th minute resumed after a more than two-hour delay due to lightning strikes in the area and a torrential downpour at DRV PNK Stadium. CF Montréal won with two goals in the first half.
