What They're Saying

“It’s close to the arena, there’s parking, it’s a site that has a view of the ocean that few teams in the world have. It goes with the [soccer] tradition of being able to walk to the stadium. It’s close to downtown. There are a lot of good things, but we are respectful of the fact that it won’t be easy for us to get the city to approve it, so we’re looking at approximately 30 other locations as well.”

-- Bolivian-born Marcelo Claure, one of David Beckham's partners in MLS's Miami expansion  team, on PortMiami, the preferred destination for the stadium. Claure added that three years was the minimum time to get the club off the ground, so he targeted a 2017 launch.  (Soccer by Ives)
