David Beckham unveils his new club’s name and crest

David Beckham spoke of his pride as the team name and crest of his Miami MLS franchise were confirmed on Wednesday.

Club Internacional de Futbol Miami – shortened to Inter Miami CF – will compete in MLS from 2020.

“This is such a proud day for myself and for the entire team,” former Manchester United star Beckham said in a statement.

“It’s an honour to announce the new name and crest to our fans – we are taking another important step in establishing our club and today marks an important moment in the history of Club Internacional de Futbol Miami.

The club suggested the name celebrates Miami as “a truly global location that welcomes and embraces all cultures and communities”.

The crest, which is adorned with two herons stood back to back, features a black background with pink and white writing, including the roman numerals MMXX, a reference to the year in which Inter Miami will take up its place in the league.

A major hurdle the team must still overcome is the development of its own stadium, with proposals subject to a referendum which will take place in November.

On 31 January 2013, ahead of the transfer deadline it was announced that Beckham would be undergoing a medical with Paris Saint-Germain ahead of a potential move to the Ligue 1 side. Beckham signed a five-month deal with the club later that afternoon and confirmed that his entire salary during his time in Paris would be donated to a local children’s charity.

His PSG debut came on 24 February 2013, when he came off the bench in the 76th minute in a Ligue 1 home match against Marseille. This made him the 400th player in the history of the club. On 12 May 2013, Beckham won a fourth different top flight winners’ medal after PSG beat Lyon 1–0 to claim the Ligue 1 title.

On 16 May 2013, Beckham announced that he would retire from professional football at the end of that year’s French football season. Following his decision to retire at the end of the 2012–13 season, Beckham was given specially designed boots in the colours of the Union Jack to wear in his final game. These boots had the names of his wife and children stitched on to them.

On 18 May 2013, Beckham was made captain in his final home game against Brest. In this game, Beckham assisted a goal by Matuidi from a corner. Beckham was subbed after 80 minutes, receiving hugs from his fellow players and manager, as well as a standing ovation from fans.PSG went on to win the game 3–1.
