David Beckham Is In It To Win It
Soccer stud David Beckham (sans wife Victoria) attends the opening of a new medical center in Madrid, Spain on Thursday night.
Alfonso De Corral, who is the doctor at Real Madrid has opened the clinic, which specializes in physical therapy.
The lure of Becks has allowed Los Angeles Galaxy sell an additional 7,000 season tickets ($5 million), increase the price of premium seats by 48% ($10 million) and sign coffers Herbalife Ltd as sponsors ($20 million dollars).
Says Tim Leiweke, chief executive officer of the Anschutz Entertainment Group, the Los Angeles-based company that owns Galaxy: “We were never worried about our financial commitment. We’ve already made our money back.”
As his t-shirt reads, David Beckham is “In It To Win It!”
