If you're not a big fan of David Beckham you might want to spend the next four years or so under a rock because the former Galaxy midfielder seems to be making news every day in his effort to bring a Major League Soccer franchise to Miami.
But even the league has said it's not likely to approve expansion to South Florida before the 2017 season.
The latest news has Beckham planning a 75,000-seat stadium in the Miami area, one that would be surrounded by shops and a hotel. Beckham has reportedly already scouted out a location -- although he's not saying where that is.
However, the Miami Herald is reporting Beckham has approached Miami-Dade County about building a stadium near the seaport, not far from the Miami Heat’s home at American Airlines Arena. According to the Herald, that proposal calls for a 25,000–seat facility.
The former English national team captain has been casting about for investors as well, with one of the interested being Liverpool FC co-owner LeBron James, a Miami resident who also dabbles in basketball.
