David Beckham reveals proposal for sea front stadium in Miami

English football star David Beckham has proposed to build a 25,000 seat-stadium for his new Major League Soccer (MLS) team on the waterfront in Miami.

The stadium has been designed by Miami-based firms Arquitectonica and 360 Architecture. Planned for a 14.5 hectare site in PortMiami, the bowl-shaped stadium offers spectators an impressive view of the Downtown Miami skyline.

Beckham said in a statement: ‘When people think of Miami, they immediately think about being near or on the water. I asked my team to develop ideas for a stadium that embraces the best of the destination.”

Beckham will be privately funding the stadium and also plans to open a series of accompanying facilities that includes shops, restaurants, a night club, an outdoor screening venue and a possible football museum.

If approval is issued by the Miami-Dade county, the project could be up and running by 2018.

Beckham‘s real estate advisor John Alschuler stated that a bridge will also be added to connect the site with the mainland.

He said: “The port of Miami is the right place because it will create a great stadium, it will energise downtown, it will create jobs and economic value.”
