The newly retired Beckham toured Sun Life and Florida International University stadiums and met with Miami-Dade County Mayor Carlos Gimenez on Saturday.
University officials delivered a presentation highlighting the draw of a Major League Soccer team in Miami. They noted that FIU’s stadium meets professional soccer specifications and that a majority of the 52,000 students are Hispanic, many of whom are avid soccer fans.
Gimenez gave Beckham keys to the county. The mayor called Miami-Dade “an ideal market” for a team.
Beckham retired from soccer this year after a career including league titles in four countries.
