Marine site might welcome soccer

Jun 5, 2014 by Guest Writer

Retired soccer player David Beckham is considering a bit of deep water north of American Airlines Arena in downtown Miami as the site of a Major League Soccer stadium, the same spot recently suggested as a place for a superyacht exhibit.

Beckham began looking for a new site after his first choice, inside PortMiami, was opposed by business interests and government officials. Any development on that site would have to be approved by voters.

The National Marine Manufacturers Association proposed establishing Superyacht Lifestyle Miami in the spot during the Miami International Boat Show in February, but postponed it until 2015.
