Miami-Dade County Mayor Carlos A. Gimenez statement on Major League Soccer franchise


(MIAMI, October 29, 2013) – We’ve not had any official notification that David Beckham has chosen Miami for a new Major League Soccer (MLS) franchise. That said, I join the hundreds of thousands soccer fans throughout South Florida who are ready and eagerly waiting for an MLS team to be established in Miami. A world-class community like Miami-Dade County, also known as the Gateway to the Americas, would be a fitting home for the world’s most popular sport.
