ExtraTime Radio: The promise and the peril of MLS expansion in Miami with beIN Sports Phil Schoen

Life's A Beach

For the second time in the past four months, the sun is shining brightly on soccer fans in the state of Florida. This time it's global superstar David Beckham dominating the headlines with his meticulous move to bring an MLS expansion franchise to South Beach, and the guys welcome on Miami resident and beIN Sports play-by-play man Phil Schoen to discuss the challenges Beckham will face, if he needs to cater to the city's changing demographics and what problems and potential the PortMiami site might bring as the future home of a soccer-specific stadium.

The guys also hash out the latest news that Colorado Rapids owner Stan Kroenke might be interested in a new MLS franchise in Los Angeles and how Jason Kreis plans to land four Manchester City players on loan at NYCFC, and listeners sound off on logo issues for the San Jose Earthquakes and Columbus Crew.
