David Beckham’s long-planned stadium deal is closer to reality. Miami voters gave city officials permission on Tuesday to negotiate a no-bid lease deal with Beckham‘s group, which wants to build a Major League Soccer complex on what has been a public golf course. Beckham’s group is also planning to have a hotel and retail space on the land, in return for guaranteeing the city about $3.6m in rent annually.

It’s not a done deal, however. Now the former England captain and his partners must negotiate the terms with city officials for the 25,000-seat stadium and discuss plans for transforming the rest of what is now the Melreese Country Club into a 58-acre public park.

The article goes on to state the following:

Tuesday’s win was an important one for Beckham’s new club, Inter Miami. Beckham has considered and wanted several other sites over the years, before turning his attention to Melreese in recent months.
