David Beckham Confirms Major League Soccer Franchise in Miami

David Beckham is all suited up for a special press conference to confirm his plans to launch a new Major League Soccer franchise held at the PAMM Art Museum on Wednesday (February 5) in Miami, Fla.

The 38-year-old retired soccer player was joined at the press event by MLS commissioner Don Garber and Mayor Carlos Gimenez for the announcement.

“I wanted to create a team that we could start from scratch. I know this city is ready for football —soccer —this time around,” David said (via the Miami Herald).

“This is the first time in the modern era that an ex-athlete is joining the ranks of ownership,” Don added at the conference.
