David Beckham’s partnership placed a down payment needed to buy land for an Overtown stadium, according to the Herald.
On September 8, Beckham’s group paid $450,000 to Miami-Dade county, just ahead of a September 10 deadline. The payment represents 5 percent of the $9 million sales price.
The county is selling about 3 acres of Water and Sewer Department land to Beckham for $9 million, while Beckham already owns 6 adjacent acres.
Bruce Matheson has filed a lawsuit to try to stop the sale. A hearing is scheduled next month.
