David Beckham and his partners looking to build a Major League Soccer stadium still want to settle down with Miami-Dade County.
But while the two sides haggle over a site, the Miami Herald reports that Beckham's group may be interested in seeing someone else: Broward County. Broward officials said they expect to talk details with Beckham soon.
Beckham has no shortage of suitors. One Miami-Dade commissioner wants him to consider a Florida International University site. Florida Atlantic University in Palm Beach County has also shown interest in the team.
David Beckham's stadium is yet to find a home in South Florida -- and Major League Soccer officials are kicking aside locations that aren't in downtown Miami.
MLS recently rejected the proposal to build Beckham's stadium next to Marlins Park, the former Orange Bowl site. MLS president Mark Abbott says the stadium needs to be downtown to be successful, the Miami Herald reports. But six years ago, MLS seriously considered the former Orange Bowl location.
The search continues for a soccer stadium in Miami. The City of Miami tells David Beckham he cannot build on a bay front boat slip.
But the beautiful game kicks off its quadrennial contest. Has Brazil’s confidence on and off the field jeopardized success of the World Cup? And the Heat’s season is in jeopardy after losing two in a row to the Spurs.
On The Florida Roundup: Former soccer star David Beckham's team presents a new plan for a stadium and park at a boat slip by the American Airlines Arena after their vision for a facility at Miami's Port faced fierce opposition.
Miami-Dade County Mayor Carlos Gimenez got into office by touting his opposition to Marlins Park. But this week he was all over in the news for deals with sports teams, including the Miami Heat and Dolphins. What’s changed?

PolitiFact Florida has rated false an ad put out by a group opposing David Beckham's proposed soccer stadium in downtown Miami. The Miami Seaport Alliance claims the stadium would threaten PortMiami jobs.
The group, led by Royal Caribbean Cruises, put out television and radio ads claiming that building a soccer stadium near PortMiami would threaten 207,000 port jobs.
That number comes from a 2012 report, before the stadium was proposed.
Miami-Dade Mayor Carlos Gimenez is proposing a new location for David Beckham’s soccer stadium, and it was on the radar six months ago.
It’s a boat slip in downtown Miami on Biscayne Bay, between Museum Park and the AmericanAirlines Arena. Gimenez says the boat slip location would fill in the land and create a pedestrian walkway on Biscayne Bay.
The location had previously raised environmental issues between officials. But Gimenez said that because the boat slip is manmade, he had gotten the okay from environmental groups.
Homestead resident Mayra Rubio was in the audience during President Obama's 2014 State of the Union address and was hoping to hear about reforms that could change her life.

With a view of the Miami skyline, the current conception of the stadium has about 24,000 seats. Which, for some downtown residents and port officials, equals cars -- a lot more cars.
But David Beckham’s real-estate advisor John Alschuler hoped to quell some of those concerns at a press conference Monday.
Soccer brings people together around the world unlike any other sport.
I grew up in England playing it for fun. Since I was young, I found the game gave me something in common with people from different places. When talking to someone from Holland or Argentina, it helped to break down the language barrier and learn about different cultures.
Everyone has an opinion when it comes to Ronaldo or Messi.
Retired soccer superstar David Beckham announced Wednesday at the Perez Art Museum Miami that he will establish a Major League Soccer franchise in the city. After the sport folded in South Florida in 2001, Beckham will bring back a new team and a new stadium.
Though the legality of the death penalty is settled, the way that we do it is not. Several Florida death row inmates have filed suit to challenge the state’s use of a drug mix they say won’t prevent excruciating pain during the execution.
