Miami’s proposed MLS stadium may have shifted preferred locations, but that doesn’t change the impressive nature of their goals.

Ownership group David BeckhamMarcelo ClaureSimon Fuller are hoping to make their stadium the jewel of 23-acre museum park project on the water in Downtown Miami.

In a press conference on Thursday, Claure and others repeatedly mentioned that MLS demands a downtown stadium in order for Miami to have a team and promised to produce one of the most iconic teams in the world, as well as a world-class tourist destination.

The group put forth two lists of import. The first included their goals to build the stadium with no city or public money, to respect the referendum and to be the people’s team.

The second was the necessities for the stadium, that it would offer an unrivaled fan experience, an economic asset to Miami, an urban location and transactional experience.

    Miami already is a world class tourist attraction they certainly don’t need a soccer team for that and it already has sports teams it barely if ever supports.

    If Beckham and friends put an entertaining product on the field, people will fill the seats. Two of the three current professional teams in the area simply don’t have the product. I’d rather sit at home and watch a snail cross the street.
