David Beckham's as yet unnamed Miami MLS franchise are making key steps in their quest to build a stadium before the team enters the league in 2018.

Beckham and his team originally wanted to have their home in the PortMiami area  but any sort of plans would've been immediately shot down by local businessmen and politicians worried about a possible effect on shipping in the area, forcing the side to change their ideas to another area of Miami.

And it seems like they have already found it. 

A consultant for Beckham's group - Miami Beckham United - told The Miami Herald on Monday that the organization had a meeting with Miami officials who recommended having the stadium near the home of the Miami Heat NBA franchise, the AmericanAirlines Arena.

The article mentioned there was a general agreement to move forward with discussions about rent and stadium designs for that site.

"I think on balance, you know, everybody felt that this site was one that was in the best interest of the citizens and we believe in the best interest of the soccer fans," John Alschuler told the paper.

The stadium plans are proving a bit of a stumbling block at the moment with a lot to still be decided. Beckham and the other investors would have been hoping to pass these barricades with ultimate ease, but that just hasn't been the case so far in downtown Miami.
