The name’s Chris, better known as Criztofferson on Instagram (follow me). Growing up in a Colombian household and playing soccer at an early age molded me into a die-hard El Pibe Valderrama fan. What struck me most about his persona was not only his creativity and offensive contribution, but his hair. I always wanted my hair to look like his. Although I was never able to achieve the look, it did spark my interest in hair. All throughout high school and college I dedicated most of my time to learning and mastering the art of cutting hair, as well as creating a strong network that would later allow me to turn my passion into a full time career. Once I felt accomplished in my field I decided it was time to explore a long lost passion of mine, soccer. Since becoming a professional soccer player was out of the question, I decided to go with the next best thing, owning an indoor soccer facility. This thought quickly became a reality when my good college friend, Ricky Ramirez, came to get a haircut at the barbershop and expressed the same interest and shortly after that, Futbol Fever was born.
I was born and raised here in Miami, FL. I developed my love for the game of Futbol at an early age and played at local clubs Cutler Ridge and Strike Force growing up. I attended Florida International University where I received my bachelors in Psychology and then went on to get my Masters in Sports Administration from St. Thomas University. Most of my professional career, I have overseen and managed college athletic facilities at FIU as well as Florida Gulf Coast University. I have always had the dream to one day open an indoor soccer facility where I could implement everything I had learned while also making it truly unique. One conversation with my long time friend Chris that had a similar dream, led us on the path to taking a leap of faith in an uncertain time during the pandemic and opening Futbol Fever. My main mission with Futbol Fever was to open a facility where children and adults alike could create great memories enjoying the game they love and establishing ourselves as a long lasting part of the local Futbol community.
