Another day down, another day closer to a significant moment for soccer fans of Miami-Dade County.

“Fútbol Miami MLS” released a website Friday with a countdown clock to a “major soccer announcement” on Monday at noon. On the website, a link was also available to the Adrienne Arsht Center’s website, where tickets were made available for this announcement. (UPDATE: Tickets for the event have sold out).

It has been almost four years since David Beckham first publicly appeared on the South Florida scene with a pledge that he would bring Major League Soccer to South Florida. 1,448 days. 34,752 hours.

A long time.

It appears that the “countup” clock many in the Miami-Dade soccer community may finally stop ticking.

After weeks of positive movement and reports that the long-awaited announcement was drawing near, the Miami Herald reported Wednesday that the Miami MLS ownership group consisting of Beckham, Marcelo Claure, Simon Fuller, and Jorge and Jose Mas would formally launch its team on Monday.
