David Beckham gains MLS support to build Miami stadium

Soccer icon David Beckham’s plan to build a Major League Soccer (MLS) stadium in Miami got the seal of approval from MLS governors this past weekend.  

Following several failures to find a home, the new stadium will now be built on the western edge of Overtown.

It was the Beckham team’s fourth attempt to buy a suitable Miami site.

The former Manchester United midfielder hopes to turn Miami Beckham United into a super-club with the financial clout of Manchester City and Paris St-Germain and aims to attract the world’s top players.

Meanwhile, the MLS board has said it supports expansion of the league to 28 clubs. MLS, however, opened a further avenue for Beckham’s consortium if they are unable to meet the 2020 expansion plans with a desire to further expand the league to 28 teams.

The league’s current plans are to expand from 20 to 24 teams by 2020.
