David Beckham is spotted visiting a soccer cage in downtown Miami where he spent time watching the local kids practicing soccer. The 39 year old former footballer took plenty of time to take pictures and sign autograph with all the kids present. It was also said that Beckham traveled all around Miami before attending the England vs Honduras exhibition match at Sun Life Stadium.
David Beckham arrived in Miami, today, after a long-haul flight from London where he spent a few days with his family. He was all smiles as he arrived and was escorted from the terminal by a security team to his waiting limo. The famous footballer is back in town negotiating stadium locations for his soccer team. Renderings of a possible Port of Miami location were just released earlier today.
David Beckham was mobbed by fans yesterday at a Miami soccer field where he was supposed to interact with kids. But with all the mayhem, he could barely move and ended up leaving before he wanted to for the kids’ and his own safety. The scene took place after he announced that he will be bringing an MLS expansion team to Miami and will be finalizing a deal for a new stadium.
David Beckham along with Major League Soccer Commissioner Don Garber and Miami Mayor Gimenez announced today that he has exercised his option for an MLS expansion team and has chosen Miami the city to host his new club. Beckham’s XIX Entertainment management agency, which includes business partner and long-time friend Simon Fuller, will partner up with MLS and local officials to finalize a deal for a world-class soccer stadium.
“From the beginning of my career in England to today in Miami, my journey has always been driven by my incredible passion for the game,” said Beckham. “Miami is a vibrant, diverse community that thrives of the same type of energy that fuels the international appeal of soccer, and I look forward to a dedicated, long-term partnership with this dynamic city and Major League Soccer. My experience with the Galaxy is what convoked me that I wanted to one day own an MLS team and it is thrilling to now see that dream coming true.”
Beckham and his representatives plan to build a stadium for the new team and continue to have productive conversations with Mayor Gimenez and the Miami-Dade County Commission regarding a world-class stadium for the community of Miami. Beckham has pledged that he will not seek County or City funds for the contraction of the stadium.
Beckham and Fuller will finalize the remainder of the ownership group over the next several months. “I can remember so well my discussions with David back in 2007,” said Fuller. “The vision was for David to play in America and to help the sport that he loves to grow in popularity. It was central to our plans that one day David would own his own team. Here we are, February 2014 in Miami, the dream is now a reality and the commitment to grow the sport that he loves continues.”
Looking sharp in business attire, David Beckham is seen leaving a Miami Beach hotel where he is seen being polite to an unidentified lady as he opens the door. It’s been rumored that the 38 year old former soccer star is in town to announce his new football team which is believed to be called ‘Beckham United.’
A press conference is scheduled for tomorrow for an announcement of the David’s team. Also seen leaving the hotel was Beckham’s XIX Entertainment management agency partner, Simon Fuller, who has teamed up with Beckham to bring the MLS expansion team to Miami.
Posh Spice, Victoria Beckham, made quite the ‘posh’ entrance on the red carpet at press night of ‘Viva Forever’, a musical based on the music of The Spice Girls at Piccadilly Theatre.

David Beckham and his LA Galaxy teammates take a 1-0 loss against the San Jose Earthquakes in the first of two playoff games at the Home Depot Center in front of a sellout crowd of 27,000. Honduran defender Victor Bernardez for San Jose stunned the Galaxy with a late goal to put San Jose a step closer to reaching the conference finals.
Bernardez spent the game trying to fend off Los Angeles’ galaxy of stars, including Ireland’s Robbie Keane. The regular-season champions left MLS’s star-studded team dismayed. Keeping L.A.(16-12-6) out of the net wasn’t easy. Keane hit the crossbar with a dangerous strike in the 85th minute that might have turned the game in the Galaxy’s favor.
Despite numerous injuries, the Galaxy had lost only one game in its previous 10. Los Angeles had won five consecutive playoff games until Sunday. The Galaxy’s best chance came in the eighth minute on David Beckham’s short free kick that found two teammates behind the defense but a twisting Keane headed it just wide of the net. David Beckham spent the last ten minutes of the game on the bench.
The Galaxy face off the Quakes for the second half of the playoff game at Buck Shaw Stadium next Wednesday.
LA Galaxy defeated the Chivas USA 3 to 1 at the Home Depot Center in L.A. on Saturday night.
Landon Donovan scored twice to lead the Galaxy to victory over the Chivas. Robbie Keane scored his fifth goal in the last four games to help the Galaxy win for the 6th time in nine games since his return from a three-week break in June.
David Beckham assisted Keane in scoring the first goal. Beckham’s three-game goal-scoring streak ended but he did assist on the first two goals.
The Galaxy have 22 goals in their last seven games after scoring just 16 in the first 15 matches. ”They’re a good enough team that they don’t need any help,” Chivas coach Robin Fraser said. ”I certainly feel like a lot of their opportunities came off our turnovers or not being clean enough with the ball. Obviously, they have some very good attacking players, and if you give them the opportunity to be dangerous, they’re going to be dangerous.”
Well done lads!
David and Victoria Beckham sit side by side to watch Wimbledon in London together and while David was spotted grinning during the match, Victoria kept her usual composure, however she did slip an arm around her hunky husband at one point.
The couple are getting ready to celebrate their daughter’s first birthday tomorrow and I am guessing there is going to be one huge party.
David Beckham’s spirits couldn’t be dampened by the rain yesterday in Athens as he arrived as part of an escort to accompany the Olympic Flame back to England ahead of the 2012 London Olympics.
Beckham, now a star player at the Los Angeles Galaxy, is lighting a cauldron today in Southwestern England on the eve of a 70-day torch relay that will start the festivities.
The flame, a sign of unity and peace dating back to ancient times in Greece, was re-introduced as a modern day symbol of the games in 1928. The flame commemorates the legend of the theft of fire from the Greek god Zeus by Prometheus. So, with all that history and significance, what’s on Beckham’s mind?
“I hope it lights” he joked with reporters.
International superstar David Beckham looked dapper with sons Brooklyn and Romeo in tote as they all spend the evening alongside Prince William & the Duchess of Cambridge at the 2011 Sun Military Awards.
The boys were dashing mini me versions of their father, wearing suits and ties, while papa Beckham opted for a classic tuxedo with a perfect bow tie.
The Beckham clan had returned from Los Angeles earlier in the day, as they were spotted at Heathrow airport, to spend the rest of the holiday season at home in London.
It appears that Brooklyn and Romeo were the lucky Beckham children that got to get dressed up and spend the evening rubbing elbows with some of the most famous names in the world, while little Cruz & new sister Harper stayed at home with mother, Victoria.
Once again, David Beckham and the L.A. Galaxy charged towards victory at a sold out game against the New York Red Bulls at the Home Depot Center.
Things were going well for Beckham until he collided in a header with New York’s Dane Richards and appeared dazed and confused enough to be taken for medical attention.
Luckily, after being attended to by team doctors Beckham appeared to be better than ever, racing back onto the field and helping to set up the Galaxy’s first goal.
Beckham was also key to the teams second goal by gaining a penalty foul from Red Bull player Roy Miller, which was converted into the perfect penalty kick by Landon Donovan.
The Galaxy beat the Red Bulls 2-1, sweeping the playoff series and advancing them to Sunday’s playoffs against Real Salt Lake team.
