Miami City Rejects Beckham’s plan for Stadium

Author: No Comments Share:

The United States city of Miami has rejected former England football captain David Beckham’s plan to build a football stadium on a city waterfront, saying the proposed location next to a major basketball arena was “inappropriate”.

Beckham has travelled to the city frequently in recent months to launch a Major League Soccer (MLS) club and his business group, Beckham Miami United, has said it will continue to pursue alternative locations.

The group is required to finalise a stadium deal before it can win approval from MLS, the US professional football league, to open a club.

Beckham Miami United agreed to finance a $250m stadium – expected to seat an estimated 20,000 spectators – and pay rent on the publicly owned land.

Beckham’s partners include British entrepreneur, Simon Fuller and mobile phone services billionaire, Marcelo Claure.
