The Miami Seaport Alliance, a group of businesses who have other plans for the waterfront venue have put an advertisement in the Miami Herald with a list of their concerns.
They say: “We cannot jeopardise well-paying jobs, like crane operators, longshore workers, and mechanics, for low-paying stadium jobs, such as concession sales,”
However, a statement from within Beckham's camp said: "“The plan doesn’t interfere with port operations. It will likely generate more revenue for the port in the shorter term than other concepts that have been discussed.”
There is no date set for the completion of any stadium or when the team would enter the league.
Beckham's Miami team join the new New York City FC in struggling to find a location for a stadium. NY City have announced they will share the New York Yankees stadium when the team enter the league next season.
Miami's new team caused excitement in the area when Beckham announced the plans earlier this year, but it seems that the project may have hit it's first setback.
