Beckham Group Set To Unveil Plans For Soccer Stadium At FEC Boat Slip
Posted May 22nd, 2014 @ 2:00am

 

David Beckham's group might give a glimpse today of what a Major League Soccer stadium would look like on a boat slip next to American Airlines arena.

Miami Beckham United is holding a noon press conference at the InterContinental Hotel in Downtown Miami.

Beckham shifted his focus to the FEC boat slip after his preferred site at PortMiami came under a firestorm of criticism. The Miami-Dade County Commission voted to eliminate PortMiami as a possible stadium location on Tuesday.

Beckham says the filling of the mostly-underwater boat slip and the construction of the stadium will be privately funded. The Beckham group is planning to apply for a state sales tax rebate.
