Details surrounding the widely anticipated creation of David Beckham’s new Major League Soccer team have finally been released. The team has been named Club Internacional de Futbol Miami and will also be known as Inter Miami CF.

As well as the name of the team, the clubs crest has also been revealed. Two herons stand back to back in front of a sun with seven rays shooting off of it, the rays are supposedly a nod to Beckham’s iconic number seven shirt at his various clubs across the years.

The badge was finally unveiled on the front page of the Miami Herald, with Beckham being very active across social media in recognition of the major step for the club.

The club’s colours are likely to be pink, white and black, the three colours featured on Inter Miami CF’s crest. The new soccer team will join the MLS in 2020, with fans of the sport patiently awaiting its debut.

David Beckham, the former England captain, Manchester United and Real Madrid superstar, has widely been deemed solely responsible for the club’s creation. Beckham will not only act as the club’s owner but as its president as well.

"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." Beckham said following the unveiling of his new team’s details.

Beckham has been very vocal in the past on the benefits that the club’s creation will provide for the city of Miami. Many of those benefits will likely come from the construction of the Miami Freedom Park, a proposed soccer village that will house the Inter Miami CF.

The Miami Freedom Park will be a privately owned, open to all, soccer village aimed at redeveloping a large area in the south coast city. The proposed sporting hub will be home to a 23,000-capacity stadium, 23 youth pitches, numerous hotel rooms, 1000s of parking spaces and an abundance of spaces for restaurants and retail as well as many more exciting additions to the city. 

Beckham has claimed that the club and the soccer village will also create 11,000 jobs in the city as well as being privately owned, therefore meaning no public funds will need to be spent on the project. But before the Inter Miami can move in, the proposals need to be approved by the city in a ballot occurring in early November.
