MIAMI – MIAMI (AP) — David Beckham's architects have recommended the Port of Miami as the stadium site for the Major League Soccer expansion team that will be owned by the former English national team captain.
The plan announced Monday would have a 25,000-seat, open-air stadium with views of the bay and the downtown skyline. The capacity could be as low as 21,000 or as high as 35,000.
More than 30 sites were evaluated for the stadium. In addition to the recommended site, Marlins Park, Florida International University and a site near the city's airport remain under consideration for the team.
There is no year set for the team to start play.
