King of the Court Volleyball events have been held in Hamburg, Germany; Utrecht, Netherlands; Rio de Janeiro, Brazil; and Doha, Qatar.

The Netherlands is known to be innovative, and King of the Court perfectly illustrates how we continue to reinvent sports,” added Miami Consul General Ruth Emmerink of the Netherlands, where King of the Court Volleyball is based. “I can’t think of a better place to launch next than a sports-focused state like Florida, and in particular, Miami Beach.”

Since opening in summer 2020, GluteHouse has remained at membership capacity.... until now. The Miami studio dedicated to building the best behinds in Miami is announcing the expansion of their current location for a major glow up that officially opens to the public on September 26.

“It’s really tough to put into words the excitement I have about all the work we’ve done towards our expansion. Over the last 2+ years, we have seen so many members transform their mentality towards training,” said Adam Becker, Founder of GluteHouse. “They are getting so strong and confident both inside and outside of the gym, and I am so pumped for 250+ new members to give us the opportunity to play a role in their journey towards health, fitness, happiness and building the butt they’ve always wanted!” 

Almost tripling the size of the current facility, the expansion will include more than 20 state-of-the-art machines focused on the lower body, TVs demonstrating the movements at each station, a new reception and retail area, a full shower and vanity area plus several new spots to take the perfect “belfie."

GluteHouse removes all of the guesswork out of lower body and glute training with a unique structured program. Guided by the studio’s mobile app and the assistance of a floor coach, members participate in a circuit-style strength training program for 50-60 minutes. A new session starts every 10 minutes, making it easy for members to fit their workout into their schedule. Floor coaches help correct form and answer any questions members may have during the workout. Every four weeks, also known as a cycle, members are provided with new programming. 

For the very first time, potential new members can now reserve a spot to try a GluteHouse workout at the studio’s Open Houses being held this September. Members will be guided by GluteHouse coaches during the 50 minute workout, have the opportunity to secure a founding membership rate, and get access to the facility’s app in addition to receiving an exclusive invite to the Glow Up Launch Party on Saturday, September 17. 

“GluteHouse training takes it back to the fundamentals to get results. Our members learn proper lifting techniques & follow a strategically designed program to help them achieve their booty goals,” said Carla Dallmann, Director of Training and Operations at GluteHouse. “We help members get stronger, become confident lifters, and have an absolute blast while on their glute-building journeys!”

Miami Chosen as a Host City for the 2026 FIFA World Cup

Miami was chosen as a host city for another global event - the 2026 FIFA World Cup! Up to six matches will be held at the Hard Rock Stadium in Miami Gardens.

“The Hard Rock Stadium campus is a global entertainment destination reflective of the dynamic and international culture of Miami,” said Tom Garfinkel, Vice Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer of the Miami Dolphins and Hard Rock Stadium. “We are excited to showcase our community on a worldwide stage and deliver an amazing experience and best in class event for players and fans.”

The 2026 World Cup will be held in cities across the United States, Canada and Mexico. Miami was one of 16 U.S. locations that bid to host the matches that will take place in June and July 2026.

The Hard Rock Stadium was built according to FIFA specifications and has hosted several marquee international matches over the years. Most notably, it was the site of a 2017 edition of El Clásico. This matchup between Real Madrid and FC Barcelona was the highest-grossing soccer match ever to take place in North America.

It won't be until 2023 when we will know many games or which rounds will be hosted in Miami.
