David Beckham’s group and Major League Soccer should realize that the land next to Marlins Park is not “spiritually tainted” but truly sacred ground for sports in light of the historic collegiate and professional championship football games played there.

There also were many well-attended international soccer matches played on these grounds. The home turf in this neighborhood, in the heart of Miami, with an easily accessible location, contributed to the past winning records of the University of Miami football teams and the Miami Dolphins. Returning to this land might provide any soccer team for Miami with the secret to its success.
