RUMOR:
BECKHAM WILL MEET CLAURE @HEAT'S GAME



MIAMI, May 28 (Reuters) - Former England captain David Beckham will visit Miami this week as he steps up his interest in owning a new Major League Soccer (MLS) team.

Beckham, who played for L.A. Galaxy in the MLS, has an option to create a new franchise in the North American league.

While the exact location is still to be decided, he will be in the Florida city to explore possibilities, according to former Miami mayor Manny Diaz.

Then, Spanish giants Barcelona, together with Miami-based Bolivian billionaire Marcelo Claure, tried to start a team but the project was called off due to "adverse market conditions".

A supporters group, calling itself MLS Miami Bid, told Reuters that Claure would be one of those meeting Beckham and that the pair planed to watch Miami Heat's NBA playoff game against the Indiana Pacers on Thursday.

Beckham buzz grows:
soccer star tours Miami stadiums, meets mayor



David Beckham toured Sun Life Stadium Saturday morning, and then visited FIU Stadium for an hour and a half, signs that he has more than just a passing interest in Miami as a Major League Soccer expansion city.

While at FIU, Beckham was greeted by Miami-Dade Mayor Carlos Gimenez, who gave him and his manager Simon Fuller keys to the city. FIU Athletic Director Pete Garcia led Beckham on a tour of the stadium, and then the school made a formal power point presentation over lunch, touting FIU’s location, 20,000-seat soccer-ready stadium, and its largely Hispanic soccer-loving student population.

Stephen Ross linked to MLS


Miami Dolphins owner Stephen Ross is looking to partner with former Manchester United and Real Madrid star David Beckham to bring an MLS expansion team to Miami, a source told ESPNFC.com.

The link between Ross and Beckham was first reported by The Daily Mail earlier this month, but on Monday a source close to Ross indicated that RSE Ventures, the sports marketing company Ross co-founded with Matt Higgins in 2012, is looking to provide marketing services to the investment group being put together by Beckham, and possibly provide a temporary stadium solution for the proposed team.

Just last month, Ross said at the Bloomberg Sports Business Summit that he was seeking to acquire an MLS expansion team and place it in Miami.

Soccer on the bay?
Report says David Beckham eyeing potential waterfront stadium in Miami



If it materializes, it could become the most picturesque soccer stadium in the country, complete with a backdrop of cruise ships, yachts and the city skyline.

A report in The Miami Herald on Tuesday claims that David Beckham and his partners, who are looking into an MLS expansion team in Miami, have identified a "top potential site for a permanent soccer stadium for a new MLS team: Port Miami."

The outlet cites the Miami-Dade County's mayor's office, who confirmed the approach by Beckham's group, while making it clear that "talks with the county over the seaport site are still in their infancy."

"We said yes, we'd take a look at it," deputy mayor Chip Iglesias told the paper, singling out 25 acres on Dodge Island.

Miami-Dade County Commissioners to Vote on Potential Soccer Stadium Tuesday

The vote could be the first step in bringing a Major League Soccer franchise to Miami, an effort spearheaded by former MLS star David Beckham.

"We are very excited about the opportunity of David putting together an ownership group and finalizing a stadium site in downtown Miami," MLS Commissioner Don Garber said last week. "We can't go to Miami without the right stadium solution. David understands that. The city understands that. That is an indisputable fact."

MLS Commissioner Don Garber:
Announcement on Miami expansion will come in early February



PHILADELPHIA – Major League Soccer Commissioner Don Garber said Thursday that the league expects to make an announcement concerning David Beckham and a potential expansion franchise in Miami within the next 30 days, potentially inching the league closer to its 22nd franchise.

“I was down there this past weekend, and I’ve been down there a lot, working with potential ownership and trying to finalize a stadium plan,” Garber told media at the MLS SuperDraft. ”Right now, we’ve got a lot of work to do, and we’ll announce something in early February.”

David Beckham exercises MLS expansion option
on future Miami franchise


David Beckham is getting back in the game with Major League Soccer.

The league announced Wednesday that the former LA Galaxy superstar has exercised his option for an MLS expansion team and will seek to build that team in Miami, a move rumored for months that now looks like a reality for soccer fans in South Florida.

MLS Commissioner Don Garber made the announcement with Beckham and Miami-Dade County Mayor Carlos Gimenez during a press conference at Perez Art Museum Miami. Beckham’s ownership group will now work with MLS and local officials to finalize a deal for a world-class soccer stadium, but a timeline for when negotiations need to be completed or when a Miami team might join the league were not revealed.

The favored stadium site among Beckham’s group is reportedly Biscayne Bay’s PortMiami, but Beckham visited a number of sites last year, including SunLife Stadium, Marlins Park and the FIU stadium on the Florida International University campus.

According to a report in the Herald last year, roughly 25 acres of the county-owned PortMiami site could be made available – enough for a 25,000-seat stadium with expandable seating for various events – if the site is chosen.

Miami is not a good sports town but Miami is always among the top 3-4 markets in terms of ratings for big matches around the world. Will that translate to MLS, I don't know

David Beckham's Miami partner Marcelo Claure
says team hopes to begin play in 2017



MIAMI – David Beckham and MLS Commissioner Don Garber didn't give a specific target date as to when the recently announced Miami franchise hopes to begin playing.

However, Beckham’s Bolivian ownership partner did.

Speaking to substantially fewer reporters than Beckham in a more private area at Perez Art Museum Miami on Wednesday following the global icon’s announcement, billionaire Marcelo Claure revealed just when the club expects to officially kick things off and other details surrounding their current plans.

“Three years, three years, 2017,” said Claure of when he hopes the club will begin playing. "That’s the idea if it all works out like we hope."

Beckham 'asks PSG for MLS funding'

David Beckham has asked the wealthy Qatari owners of Paris Saint-Germain to help fund his new Major League Soccer franchise in Miami, according to Le Parisien.

Beckham, who was last month invited to a PSG charity function, hopes QSI will join him and backers Marcelo Claure and Simon Fuller in helping re-establish football in Florida's main city.

"Yes, David Beckham has asked us for help," Le Parisien quotes a QSI source as saying. "No decision has been taken yet."

Report reveals potential names, logo, kits for David Beckham's proposed Miami MLS expansion team


David Beckham said he had some proposed names for his new Miami-based MLS expansion team when he met the media last week in South Florida, but it was anyone's guess at the time what that team might actually look like on the field.

On Wednesday, however, a local newspaper may have offered a glimpse into Miami's soccer future.

The Palm Beach Post published images of a jersey and a logo that the paper claims is "one of the logo designs used by the Beckham group in its presentations" in recent meetings with local officials and prospective investors. The report cites sources for three of the potential team names being entertained: Miami Vice, Miami Current and an undisclosed name tied to a corporate sponsor.

Beckham exploring possibility of joint MLS/UM stadium

David Beckham’s group is exploring the feasibility of building a soccer stadium that would be large enough to accommodate the University of Miami football team, and UM would have interest if the stadium meets the school’s requirements and if the Hurricanes can somehow escape their long Sun Life Stadium lease, according to sources on both sides.

Beckham’s group and UM have had preliminary discussions, but the Beckham camp and MLS likely need a couple of months to determine whether it’s realistic.
UM has told the Beckham camp that it needs a stadium with at least 40,000 seats to accommodate Hurricanes games; Beckham’s group initially has spoken of having 25,000 seats. UM also would need the stadium to have sufficient parking, large enough locker-rooms and enough suites.

UM wants no fewer than 40,000 seats because it has about 30,000 season-ticket holders and allots 6000 seats for students and another 4000 to sell to the visiting team.

Will David Beckham Name Team "Miami Fusion FC"?

Josh Deaver wanted to find out what David Beckham intends to call his MLS franchise, so he started digging around. And then he dug some more. And then he found some very interesting clues.

A recent trademark filing, submitted in June 2013 by InteliSport Inc., appears to signal a new incarnation of Miami's once-shuttered MLS franchise—Miami Fusion FC.

Contracted by the league in 2001 after four years of poor attendance and lack of profitability, the Fusion, along with the defunct Tampa Bay Mutiny, long represented the cautionary tale of American soccer in the southeast. Recently, however, the tide has turned. Orlando has been granted an MLS franchise and is slated to join the league prior to the 2015 season. Along with ongoing discussions with Arthur Blank, owner of NFL's Atlanta Falcons, Commissioner Don Garber has clearly made this southern revival a top priority for the league.

Here is how a proposed 40,000 MLS/UM stadium at Port Miami could look
The "U" will be out of the liability soon enough, as it is WELL known that after the rat owner of the Dolphins did NOT get the S Fl voters to approve his request for the Stadium's Remake, this White Elephant will be soon bulldozed to make room for a new Stadium worth it Super Bowls Style.

If the Miami Futbol Team gets the NOD, The "U" would be the PERFEXT sharing Partner of the Grounds !!!!
