Yesterday’s meeting between David Beckham and Miami mayor Tomas Regalado ended the history of Museum Park Stadium project. Mayor was quoted to find the proposed location inappropriate.
Yesterday afternoon David Beckham and his associates from Miami Beckham United met with mayor Tomas Regalado to discuss the proposed Museum Park location for new MLS stadium. After abandoning PortMiami because of severe opposition, now the English millionaire hoped to win support for a new plot in downtown.
However, the meeting definitely ended Museum Park discussion. The group issued a statement saying: “Miami Beckham United and City of Miami Mayor Tomas Regalado met today to discuss a path forward for bringing a Major League Soccer club to Miami. Mayor Regalado and the City Manager expressed their belief that the FEC slip is an inappropriate location for a soccer stadium.”
Beckham is almost certain to return with a third proposal. Already while unveiling the first vision he suggested more sites were under consideration. However, their number is surely limited, because downtown is the only area suggested for the stadium.
