Soccer star David Beckham returned to South Florida Monday to rally for a yes vote on his proposed soccer stadium in Miami.
Beckham was spotted in Doral with Jorge Mas, owners and partners of the Major League Soccer team InterMiami.
If things go Beckham’s way, his group could get closer to making the new soccer stadium, mall, park and 750-room hotel a reality. But first, they need a place to play.
On Election Day, voters will decide whether to vote yes or no to do away with the formal bidding process in the Miami City Charter, so that the Beckham group can begin negotiating with the city to build a $1 billion complex-soccer stadium at Melreese Country Club.
A yes vote means Beckham will begin putting together a lease to operate and build on the city-owned land. However, he’d still need four out of five commissioners to approve the lease.
Beckham’s camp has a public party scheduled for Tuesday night at 800 Douglas Road.
