David Beckham has had no success in Miami for his proposed soccer stadium, but politicians in Broward County are inviting him there.
Barbara Sharief, Mayor of Broward, is asking the 31 cities in the county to provide a list of possible locations for a Major League Soccer Stadium. Sharief plans on compiling a list, including a property the county itself owns on Sunrise, and presenting it to Beckham.
“He has $400 million to invest in a soccer stadium,” Sharief said, “He doesn’t want any tax dollars. He has his own money. He was disappointed with his treatment in Miami.”
John Alschuler, adviser to Beckham, did not say much about possible stadium locations, but did say that they were still looking at Miami-Dade sites.
