David Beckham, who’s been looking in Miami for a stadium site for his Major League Soccer franchise, could reportedly build on the site of the former Orange Bowl.

A pending Miami-Dade County resolution calls on the county to negotiate with Beckham to build where the Orange Bowl formerly was.

The retired soccer star issued a statement acknowledging the resolution, the South Florida Business Journal reported.

“Miami Beckham United appreciates the support put forth by Commissioner Barreiro and his fellow commissioners,” the Beckham group said in the emailed statement through a spokesperson. “David [Beckham], Marcelo [Claure] and Simon [Fuller] are committed to bringing a Major League Soccer club to Miami-Dade County, and we’re still working toward that goal.

“While the prospect of building a stadium near the site of the former Orange Bowl is of interest, a number of viable options are on the table. In the end, our goal is to identify a stadium site that meets the needs of our fans, our club and the league,” the statement continues. [South Florida Business Journal]Katherine Kallergis
