The previous England captain revealed on Friday that his band of people has actually obtained a site to construct a privately financed arena into the Overtown area of Miami.

“Miami Beckham United has guaranteed a stadium development web site at 650 Northwest 8th Street within the City of Miami’s historic Overtown area, ” Beckham’s investment group said in a declaration. “We intend to produce an assemblage of private and County-controlled land totaling approximately nine acres in Miami’s metropolitan core, within walking length of multiple community transportation options and also the up-and-coming Miami River District.

“The exclusive properties, which make up the majority of the land, tend to be under agreement and we also want to buy the County land at fair marketplace worth pending approval of your site by the MLS Board of Governors.”

The announcement comes one day ahead of the league’s Board of Governors is due to convene in Columbus, where MLS Cup last will require place on Sunday afternoon.

The time is hardly accidental: the Orlando Sentinel reported on Thursday that MLS commissioner Don Garber advised that Sacramento threatened to overtake Miami when you look at the development waiting line in order to become the league’s 24th team.

“This would be the most accountable arena development in Miami history, ” the declaration continued. “Construction of our location is going to be privately funded and we'll utilize Miami-Dade County Public institutes to determine our club as an educational resource for the community. We will in addition engage nearby companies and residents once we develop our stadium design and take steps to enhance a nearby.”

Beckham’s designs on taking a team to Miami have actually remained mostly on hold since he exercised a contract option to purchase an MLS club in February 2014 for $25m, a reduced franchise charge negotiated as he signed because of the Los Angeles Galaxy in 2007.

The greatest obstacle for Beckham, whoever financial investment team includes long-time company connect Simon Fuller and Sprint CEO Marcelo Claure, have been settling on a downtown website for a soccer-specific arena.

If the Board of Governors accept the website, it’s thought Beckham’s staff could enter the league alongside la FC for the 2018 season, with Atlanta United FC and Minnesota United FC expected to join in 2017.
