We’ve been hearing rumblings for a few weeks now that David Beckham and Miami are getting closer to a stadium deal. Reports out of South Beach indicate that the club could be getting closer to a deal for a stadium next door to the MLB Marlin’s Park in Little Havana.

Despite months of silence and political stalemate, professional soccer is still coming to Miami, MLS’ commissioner reiterated this weekend — and there’s still a good chance the new team will play right next to Marlins Park. 

At an event late last week, Miami-Dade Commissioner Xavier Suarez once again showed off his office’s three-dimensional renderings of what a new stadium in Little Havana might look like. He tells New Times that David Beckham’s group still views the site as the most likely for a new stadium.

MLS Commissioner Don Garber pointed out late last week that Miami would be in the league by the end of the decade. It continues to come down to a viable stadium for the club too.

Hopefully the stadium won’t look a thing like the rendering shown in the link above.

    Not the waterfront, but certainly not the worst possible location. Little Havana is more likely to draw people in from the city and southern suburbs. It also draws a clear geographic line between this club and the Strikers.
