David Beckham is lobbying for Amazon to choose Miami as a site for HQ2.
Beckham made an appearance in a video with Mayor Francis Suarez this week. In it, he tells Amazon: “I Chose Miami, You Should Too.”
Meanwhile, it has emerged that both Beckham and Amazon could be eyeing the same piece of land as a potential site for either HQ2 or a soccer stadium, according to Doug Hanks.
Jorge Mas, who recently joined Beckham’s soccer partnership as an investor, is said to be dissatisfied with the size and location of the Overtown site chosen by the group. Instead, he has been scouting alternatives, including Doral and the 180-acre Melreese golf course next to Miami International Airport.
Mas has said that Melreese is also being pitched to Amazon, Hanks wrote.
