David Beckham has brought in powerful Miami siblings Jorge and Jose Mas to his investment group planning a multimillion-dollar Major League Soccer stadium in Overtown.
The MasTec brothers, whose father founded the engineering and construction firm, have joined the venture, while majority partner and Los Angeles Dodgers co-owner Todd Boehly has bowed out, according to the Miami Herald.
Beckhamâ€™s yearslong attempt to bring an MLS team to Miami is banking on approval from the leagueâ€™s owners, some of whom have been critical of the soccer starâ€™s discounted $25 million expansion fee. Theyâ€™re expected to meet on Thursday and will be discussing the Miami franchise, the Herald reported.
