David Beckham granted license to launch Major League Soccer franchise in Miami

David Beckham has been granted a licence to found an Major League Soccer franchise in Miami as the former England captain says he is ready to bring a global sport to a global city.
Beckham confirmed his long-awaited expansion franchise at a press conference on Monday alongside MLS commissioner Don Garber.

The former England captain included an option to purchase an MLS franchise in his contract when he first joined LA Galaxy in 2007, and officially announced his intention to found a team in Miami in 2014. However, the venture to take a team to the city was hampered for a number of years by the need to identify a suitable location for a stadium.

Beckham hopes to entice big stars to his new venture but says the franchise will look to capitalise on the hotbed of talent in Miami when signing players.
