David Beckham is getting excited about building a Major League Soccer Stadium in Miami.  Beckham and his partners have purchased the private land needed for a stadium in Overtown.  This is a major move for the Beckham and gets him one step closer to his goal which is to bring a Major League Soccer franchise to Miami.

This news didn’t happen overnight.  Beckham has been working on plans to bring a MLS team to south Florida for years.  Miami Beckham United is the group of investors that have looked into several sites to build a stadium over the years but those plans have all fallen through until now. The location is northwest of downtown and includes 6 acres of land comprised of two private properties.  The group has taken everything into consideration – the right investor partnership, location of the stadium, adequate parking, as well as cost to the public which will be nothing, even though the stadium is expected to cost over $200 million to build.  This is a privately funded deal.

What an exciting time for soccer fans in South Florida! Marcelo Claure who is Chief Executive Officer of Sprint and one of Beckham’s partners posted on Twitter to announce the close of the deal.
