Miami- David Beckham’s hopes of building a new stadium for his Inter Miami franchise in the MLS has moved a step closer to being realised after a vote by residents.
Approximately about 60% if the city’s voters decided to allow the club to negotiate to build on a 73-acre site that is currently a council-owned golf course.
The new development will house a stadium, shopping mall, hotel and public park. The next step for Beckham’s group is to get approval of four out five city’s commissioner’s.
“I need to say a big thanks to the fans who have stuck by us,” said former England captain Beckham.
“Today is an exciting day. We have had a dream of bringing a team to this great city. We want to create a legacy, something our children will aspire to.
“But we also want to win. I am not coming here just to have a pretty team. Winning championships [is] important to me.”
