FIU stadium was dropped because it was not "downtown" Miami. Now the latest proposed site is in Overtown ,
Quote:
which consists of a vacant lot and a truck depot being used by the Sewer Department?


Oh, and not enough space to include parking ....

I'm not sure what exactly you're trying to say.

MLS was never going to call FIU Stadium their home. Maybe for a year or two until a permanent stadium was built, but that was it.

As for parking, Metrorail is literally 3 blocks away from the proposed site. If you don't live within a few miles of a station, take Uber with a friend or two.

0 parking at a stadium doesn't work even in NY. I think MLS may never come to Miami with this Beckham group. The Vice article makes look really lazy about the whole thing.

Another crazy suggestion: Drive to the metrorail and ride the train. THE HORROR!
