Beckham partner disses Dade parks as ‘cow pastures’ as he celebrates Broward deal





The David Beckham group scored a win in Fort Lauderdale Tuesday night, but it was the Wednesday morning tweet that caused problems in Miami-Dade.
“Our parks are cow pastures and kids have to go to Orlando to play tourneys,” Beckham lead partner Jorge Mas wrote in a 1:12 a.m. Twitter post responding to a question about why a $60 million training facility for his and Beckham’s Major League Soccer team was going to Broward instead of Miami. “Sad state of affairs in Miami Dade.”
Mas had tried to take over part of a Miami-Dade park for the MLS training complex and soccer academy that’s now slated to go in the boarded-up Lockhart Stadium in Fort Lauderdale, where the City Commission voted unanimously Monday to start negotiations with the Beckham group.
While the team is slated to play home games at a 25,000-seat Miami stadium, Mas abandoned Miami-Dade as a training site over complications tied to a county charter amendment requiring voter approval to build on a county park. Mas dinged that legal hurdle in the Twitter post, too.
