Acquired the franchise of the U.S. club a couple of weeks ago, and was proposed to build a luxury stadium
Former England footballer David Beckham seeks to transform Miami into one of the most powerful teams in the MLS (Major League Soccer). Former flyer played football in the twilight of his career, acquired the franchise of the U.S. club a couple of weeks ago, and was proposed to build a luxury stadium.
The property is designed to receive 25 thousand people and would be located in the port of Miami. In addition, other areas such as Florida International University, the International Center of Miami and the Marlins Park, home of the baseball team are evaluated.
Investor intends that the property will host 17 games of the American League and international friendly matches and would be used for other types of shows.
Beckham plans to surround the stadium luxury brands as a commercial center, restaurants and bars are created.
Beckham posted a message on Miami diaries saying:
Yesterday we announced that we are taking the first steps to take the Major League Soccer to this great city. Today I personally want to thank everyone for the warm and friendly welcome they have given me.
While we consider several places, I knew in my heart - from my first visit - which Miami was not the right home for our club. This wonderfully diverse and vibrant community is presented with the same energy that makes football the most popular sport in the world.
I am excited and honored to help bring soccer to Miami, and to help even more deserved reputation for Miami as a world class.
