David Beckham in Tallahassee pushing for tax breaks for pro soccer stadiums

TALLAHASSEE  --  Soccer star David Beckham is in Tallahassee today pushing for tax breaks for professional soccer stadiums.
That's because he wants to bring a new team and stadium to Miami.
Right now Beckham's eyes are on Port Miami.
The plan announced Monday would have an open-air stadium with views of the bay and the downtown skyline.
But Royal Caribbean has announced its against the idea because it has other plans for the land.
However that hasn't swayed Beckham.
"I don't want to be an enemy to the people that are opposing the stadium. I want to work with them. I want to change their minds to the fact that we are here to help the community."

The stadium is expected to be completed by 2018 and will seat about 25,000 people.
