An investment group led by soccer superstar David Beckham has asked Miami-Dade County to consider PortMiami as the site for its proposed soccer stadium.

The group has asked the county to allow it to build the stadium on the southwest corner of Dodge Island.

“They kind of elevated this site,” Deputy Mayor Chip Iglesias said. “We said yes, we’d take a look at it.”

Marcelo Claure of the Miami-based Brightstar and a member of Beckham’s investment group, says “We are looking at a lot of locations and working closely with Dade County officials analyzing all of them. The port is only one of them.”

Public officials have said the county would not finance a stadium, but would consider leasing county-owned land at the port to team owners, who would then build the stadium.
