David Beckham’s Proposed Miami Stadium Plans Still in Limbo

It was a year ago that British football great David Beckham expressed enthusiasm over having a soccer stadium in Miami, but since then, all proposed plans for the site have been nixed or met with difficulties, and there seems no goal in site, as reported by NBC.

The Miami Dade County Commission approved the initial plan unanimously, but there have been only obstacles, and NBC reports that Beckham and his crew feel “burned” by the city’s politicians. Proposals at PortMiami went sour, and Beckham is said to be looking to work privately, rather than through politicians.

John Alschuler, Beckham’s spokesman sounds more hopeful, and said there has been “significant progress” made. “I am optimistic that there will be several positive announcements in the first quarter.” Juan C. Zapata, County Commissioner, has suggested Beckham temporarily locate the site at the Florida International University’s main campus until a permanent home is found. Zapata said once there is an actual team playing somewhere, the proposals may pass.

The priority is to build a stadium in downtown Miami rather than in places outside the city, as was done in other downtowns of Seattle and Portland. In the meantime, the search continues.
