David Beckham's Stadium Plan for Future MLS Team Wins Vote!

David Beckham's Stadium Plan for Future MLS Team Wins Vote!

David Beckham is dapper in a suit as he hits the stage to celebrate the yes vote for the InterMiami Soccer Club on Tuesday (November 6) in Miami Beach, Fla.

The 43-year-old retired professional soccer player’s hopes of building a new stadium for his Inter Miami franchise in the MLS moved a step closer to being realized after a vote by residents.

About 60% of the city’s voters opted to allow the club to negotiate to build on a 73-acre site that is currently a council-owned golf course. The complex would house a stadium, shopping mall, hotel and public park.

David‘s group now has to get the backing of four of the city’s five commissioners: “I need to say a big thanks to the fans who have stuck by us,” David expressed at the event. “Today is an exciting day. We have had a dream of bringing a team to this great city. We want to create a legacy, something our children will aspire to. But we also want to win. I am not coming here just to have a pretty team. Winning championships [is] important to me.”

Inter Miami are scheduled to make their MLS debut in 2020 after being awarded an expansion contact in January.
