Beckham’s group says private landowners may block stadium plan

Beckham partner: Land owners ‘probably will’ blow up soccer deal

Miami Herald 11/5/15

David Beckham’s top Miami negotiator said Thursday that owners of the private land needed for a Miami soccer stadium “probably will blow this deal up,” sounding the alarm over a potential failure of negotiations he said must be completed within a few weeks…

His blunt remarks could be an example of public brinkmanship to put pressure on the land-holders trying to get top dollar for their real estate, or it could signal real trouble in Beckham’s third try for a stadium site in his two-year quest to bring Major League Soccer to Miami. Miami plans a referendum on the expected stadium plan in March, to coincide with the presidential primary.
