Retired soccer star David Beckham has brought on another Miami-Dade County lobbyist in his search for a stadium site to house his Major League Soccer team.

Rosario Kennedy, who has represented the developers of Wynwood Plaza and designer Naeem Khan, registered as a lobbyist for Miami Beckham United with the county last week, according to published reports.

Kennedy will help the team look for possible properties for the stadium, the Next Miami reported.

Beckham was sent back to the drawing board after the county rejected several of his proposed sites, including downtown Miami’s Museum Park. The county suggested Beckham use the former site of the Orange Bowl, which he acknowledged as a possibility in a statement.

He was reportedly hunting for private property owners to build his stadium in December. [The Next Miami]Sean Stewart-Muniz
