County Commission Takes PortMiami Off Table As MLS Stadium Site
The Miami-Dade County Commission today "eliminated from contention the public location" David Beckham's MLS ownership group "had initially set its sights on at PortMiami" for a soccer-specific stadium. This comes after Miami Beckham United yesterday "conceded that the port location was now its Plan B." As of today, the investor group "will have no fallback plan." The commissioners voted 11-1 against a PortMiami stadium (MIAMIHERALD.com, 5/20).
