Beckham Group Releases New MLS Stadium Plan, Hints At Ultimatum
Published May 23, 2014
OFFERING AN ULTIMATUM? Alschuler and fellow investor Brightstar Communications CEO Marcelo Claure said that the proposal "would provide four additional acres of parking space and create a seamless waterfront walkway in downtown Miami connecting the stadium to nearby museums, restaurants and green spaces." Alschuler "declined to say whether Miami Beckham United would consider other sites in the city if the latest proposal were to fall though." However, Claure was "less discrete." He said, "No stadium downtown, no team in Miami" (AP, 5/22). Claure: "I say there is never all-or-nothing, but I say we’re getting very close to that. We’re going to put all of our energy and all of our passion into explaining to the people of Miami why this is a great site and why they should endorse it. I think we cannot afford to lose this one." In Ft. Lauderdale, Craig Davis notes Beckham has "not announced a name for his team, and Claure said that won’t happen prior to the referendum" (South Florida SUN-SENTINEL, 5/23).
