Beckham, of course, is in Miami to promote his proposed soccer stadium complex and park at Melreese Country Club. Miami Freedom Park, as it would be known, would encompass a green space, a Major League Soccer franchise, and a retail component.
The game starts at 2 p.m. and will be shown on large screens set up throughout the venue. Kids and dogs are welcome all afternoon.
In addition, the Wharf's dining options will be open today, serving food for hungry fans. Eateries at the Wharf include La Santa Taqueria, Cracked by Chef Adrianne, Spris Artisan Pizza, Garcia's Seafood, OG Ceviche by Douglas Rodriguez, Mojo Donuts, and Sweet Melody Ice Cream.
