SUPPORT BECKHAM SOCCER STADIUM AT FORMER ORANGE BOWL SITE, AND BRING UM FOOTBALL BACK HOME!
There’s a heated debate underway in our community about the location of a potential soccer stadium for David Beckham’s new team. It’s an important discussion with many points of view, but one clear choice is emerging. By selecting the former site of the Orange Bowl, our community can accomplish many things at once, including the creation of a place where futbol and football can live side-by-side!
We believe in the following principles:
- We DO want professional soccer in Miami and believe David Beckham will make a great owner for our community. We should roll out the red carpet for this global icon, just not at the expense of other key constituencies.
- We’re a community of Canes fans and Miami Dade County residents, with tremendous pride in our local football team. That said, we're tired of driving an hour to catch a game and miss the days when we could root for the home team in the heart of our community. University of Miami has expressed interest in the potential to play home games on the very land it built an iconic history of success.
- We believe in fiscal restraint, and this site would save the taxpayers up to $125 million in impact fees due to already-existing infrastructure, parking, water and power base.
- We envision a booming entertainment central combining two beautiful stadiums, symbiotically connected and attracting amazing performances from across the globe.
Please sign this petition to encourage Beckham to choose the former Orange Bowl site, support something that finally makes sense, and bring a winner back to our community.
