As part of its push to build support before a Thursday vote for its proposed “Miami Freedom Park,” Fútbol Miami MLS is hosting a watch party for the England and Croatia FIFA World Cup Semifinal at The Wharf in Downtown Miami featuring co-owner and soccer legend David Beckham.
According to the Facebook post advertising the event, doors open at noon, even though the game kicks off at 2 p.m. It is scheduled to run through 6 p.m., although there’s no mention of when Beckham is scheduled to arrive or leave. Those interested in going can register through Eventbrite before arriving, however walk-ups are allowed as long as the venue isn’t full.
Beckham is a key part of the MLS ownership group, as it is his option that allows the group to enter the league at a discount rate. Fellow co-owner Jorge Mas shared a video of Beckham rallying support for the Thursday meeting on Twitter.
