MIAMI (AP) - David Beckham and his business partner say the soccer star’s brand will draw television revenues and sponsorships to a Major League Soccer stadium they want to build in Miami.

Beckham and Simon Fuller met with The Miami Herald’s editorial board Thursday (https://hrld.us/1fTMw3K ). They want to build a privately financed $250 million stadium on public land near the port of Miami.

Fuller said the venture would “generate more money than any other MLS team can dream of.” Beckham’s group dislikes a proposal to build their stadium next to the Miami Marlins’ ballpark.

Royal Caribbean Cruises is among the critics of a port stadium, saying it would hurt the cargo and cruise industries. Chairman Richard Fain told the editorial board last week that the plan is “not a financially viable transaction.”
