3 June 2013

David Beckham might have retired from his 20-year soccer career but he is definitely not stopping his passion for the sport. Recent news has reported that the soccer star is looking into the prospect of owning a Major League Soccer team right in Miami. Beckham is even “excited” with the plans.

The mdfielder had recently visited stadiums, met political leaders and fans.

The plan came up after a provision in his LA Galaxy contract allowed him to create a new team through franchise expansion.

Representatives for Beckham had already talked with the league over the purchase plans. While the league has no current franchise in Miami, the Beckham was said to have other areas in mind.

Part of this visit in Miami was two stadiums, and one of them was the Sun Life Stadium, home to NFL’s Miami Dolphins and has a capacity of around 75,000. Another target was the stadium at the Florida International University, which can hold 20,000 fans.

Among the people Beckham met during his visit was Miami-Dade Sports Commission Executive Director, Jose Sotolongo.
