First Rendering Of Beckham’s $500M Overtown Soccer Stadium

This is the first rendering of a 25,000-seat soccer stadium planned by Miami Beckham United in Overtown.

New details about the privately funded project were revealed at a Town Hall meeting yesterday, according to the Herald.

Total cost will exceed $500 million, Beckham representatives said.

Completion has been pushed back until 2021. The city approval process, including zoning changes and street closures, is expected to take at least a year. Construction will take 18 months.

The team may start play at another venue such as Marlins Park or Hard Rock Stadium while construction is underway.

To make up for the lack of parking, the team will focus on the metrorail station as a transportation option. There will also be a dinner cruise from downtown, and shuttles to parking garages.

The Miami-Dade commision will vote on the land sale needed to build the stadium on June 6.
