Lebron and Beckham Looking Into Stadium Locations

lebron_beckham_2013ORLANDO, Florida (AP) – LeBron James spoke out again Wednesday about his involvement with David Beckham and the retired superstar’s plan to bring an MLS team to Miami.

Specifically, James talked about finding a place for the team to call home.

”We’re working on it,” James said.

Beckham scouted some Miami locations last week. Beckham, who played for the Los Angeles Galaxy in MLS, has the right to pay $25 million to start an expansion franchise, and is seeking investors to assist with the overall startup costs such as stadium construction and player acquisitions.

”I wish it was easy,” James said. ”We’re working on it. We’ll see what happens.”

MLS expansion is all the rage in Florida these days, with Beckham deciding last month that the former England captain wanted to bring a team to Miami and after Orlando was awarded a team that will begin play in 2015.
