Miami’s new deal with Soccer player David Beckham and his group of investors, who want to bring Major League Soccer to Miami, is causing those currently living within the new proposed stadium site a lot of angst, as the sale of the land in which their homes sit on will be sold.
The City of Miami is waiting to hear back from Beckham’s group about how much the acquisition of the land surrounding Marlins Park will cost. That land in question includes privately owned apartment complexes and homes, so residents of those homes will be displaced.
The future of this Miami-based Soccer franchise will be up in the air, as Miamians are notorious for being ‘fair-weather’ sports fans.
Attendees will show up at first to see the sparkling new stadium, but then slump back into their old ways and refrain from attending future games.
This of course changes if the team is actually doing well, and if the team manages to get a lot of media hype.
Everyone loves a winner, right?
This has sadly been the case with the Florida Marlins, now the Miami Marlins, the debunk Miami Fusion soccer team, and the Miami Heat, when they really stunk it up.
