The original 30acres+ PortMiami site is not under consideration anymore as per The Miami-Dade County Commission. The new site under consideration is nestled between the AAA and Museum Park. The plan would be to fill-in the deep water boat slip (estimated cost $20M). This Plan would serve to provide continuity with the BayWalk and add an additional 30% to the overall footprint of Museum Park. The entire cost for the planning  development of this MLS Stadium is being covered by the Beckman Group.

Beckham United released a statement Monday afternoon that read:
“Miami Beckham United appreciates the vision and leadership that Mayors Gimenez and Regalado have demonstrated in identifying the best possible site for an MLS soccer venue. Both Mayors are in agreement that downtown Miami and soccer are a perfect match. Expanding Museum Park with the addition of the FEC slip and Parcel B will complete the vision of a continuous downtown waterfront anchored by world-class museums and a world-class soccer park. We look forward to working with the Mayors to make our case to their respective Commissions and the community over the coming months. Our collective goal is clear: Miami Beckham United will deliver a park and soccer venue that will make Miami proud.”
