Miami Freedom Park, Inter Miami CF's new stadium announces groundbreaking, expecting 2025 opening

Inter Miami CF has commenced stadium construction in Miami, aiming for global superstar Lionel Messi to grace the field.


Construction on the expansive 131-acre Miami Freedom Park, located near Miami International Airport, began this month. The project includes a 25,000-square-foot MLS stadium, a 58-acre public park, and an entertainment district, all set to unveil in 2025. With Messi's contract expected to extend until 2025, Inter Miami anticipates the Argentinian forward and World Cup MVP to play a home game in Miami.

Beckham's vision extends beyond Messi's signing, as he aspires to build a state-of-the-art stadium in Miami that will not only cater to the team's needs but also serve as a prominent tourist destination. This dream is taking shape as Miami Freedom Park, a development that includes a 25,000-seat soccer-specific stadium, along with a public park, a tech hub, restaurants, shops, City of Miami’s new offices, and other amenities.


While Beckham's dream stadium is still in the planning stages, it promises to be an impressive addition to Miami's skyline and a major tourist attraction. Moreover, it is expected to bolster Inter Miami CF and contribute significantly to the growth of soccer in the United States.


The financing for this ambitious endeavor is primarily private, spearheaded by none other than David Beckham himself, along with fellow Inter Miami CF owners Jorge Mas and Marcelo Claure. Garnering the support of the City of Miami, the project not only promises to be a sporting landmark but also an economic driver, generating thousands of employment opportunities during its construction and operation phases.



As the construction work progresses, anticipation builds, and on the anticipated opening day in 2025, the world's eyes will be fixed on Miami Freedom Park. The state-of-the-art stadium is expected to stand tall, symbolizing Beckham's unwavering commitment to soccer and the city of Miami. The momentous occasion is anticipated to become a testament to the extraordinary collaboration between Beckham, Messi, and the entire Inter Miami CF team, working passionately to transform Miami into a central player in the global soccer scene.


The proposed complex at Freedom Park is an ambitious endeavor that will encompass a variety of exciting features. Key elements of the project include a 25,000-seat soccer stadium, a 750-room hotel, an office building, a vibrant soccer village featuring shops and restaurants, and a sprawling 58-acre park. Additionally, the development will incorporate a state-of-the-art training center and extensive public green spaces.



Financing for this remarkable project is exclusively private, with the club ownership investing approximately $1 billion to bring this vision to life. The project gained overwhelming support from the community, as evidenced by a resounding 60% voter approval in a November 2019 referendum.


The site of the complex will be a redeveloped Melreese Golf Course, conveniently situated near Miami International Airport, making it easily accessible to locals and visitors alike. The eagerly anticipated opening of the stadium is targeted for the summer or early fall of 2025, promising an exhilarating addition to the city's sports landscape.


Furthermore, as a sign of continued progress, the Miami City Commission has taken a step forward in constructing a new city government office building at the Freedom Park site, further solidifying the development's transformative impact on the region.
