David Beckham’s latest Miami stadium plans revealed

David Beckham's MLS Miami ownership group presented their new vision for a waterfront stadium in downtown Miami on Thursday that would hold 20,000 spectators.  The ambitious plans revolve around filling in a deep-water boat slip that currently sits next to the American Airlines Arena, home of the NBA's Miami Heat, an estimated $20 million project which would enable the construction of a home for an MLS expansion club while also increasing the overall size of adjacent Museum Park by 4.3 acres.

“By expanding Museum Park with new public spaces anchored by world-class art and science museums and a world-class soccer club, we’ll be activating the waterfront on a year-round basis,” David Beckham said in a statement.

The project will not call on city or county funds but looks likely to require a partnership between the city of Miami and Dade County, both of which control land in the vicinity.
