Beckham Ready to Consider Broward County: Report

As David Beckham’s group continues to search for a location for a new Major League Soccer stadium, Broward County may be ready to step in to facilitate a stadium outside of Miami, according to the Miami Herald.

Broward County Commissioner Stacy Ritter said she expects to speak with someone from David Beckham's group Wednesday and hopes to set up a face-to-face meeting to discuss the possibility of  building a soccer stadium for Beckham's Major League Soccer team.

The move comes after Beckham’s group was denied two prime locations in downtown Miami for a new soccer stadium. The group originally looked at a plot of land near the Port of Miami, but it was axed in favor of land next to the AmericanAirlines Arena.

The area near the AAA was rejected by the city of Miami after Miami-Dade County killed the Port of Miami project.


One area of land that might fit would be county-owned land near the BB&T Center, where the Florida Panthers play.

"It would come down to whether or not the site meets Beckham's specifications," Broward County Mayor Barbara Sharief said in an email to NBC 6 last week. "If he wants waterfront property, we have plenty of that in Broward County as well. We're very willing to talk to him."
