Miami will get a Major League Soccer Franchise. Soccer legend, David Beckham has exercised his option to purchase an expansion team in the home of the Heat, Dolphins and Marlins. The deal will be finalized once Beckham can secure a financing plan and location for a new stadium.
“We don’t want public funding,” Beckham said to applause. “We will fund the stadium ourselves. We have worked very hard to get to this stage where we can fund the stadium ourselves. We want to create a football club that is the people’s football club.”
Beckham is also still pursuing LeBron James involvement with the team.
