Former England captain David Beckham revealed Wednesday that his Major League Soccer (MLS) team will be called Inter Miami.
The club also unveiled its shield, a circular logo that includes two white herons, an emblem that says it celebrates Miami’s “international, diverse, inclusive, creative and ambitious spirit.
Beckham received an MLS franchise in Miami in January after announcing plans to launch a team in the South Florida city four years ago.
“This is a day of pride for me and the entire team. It is an honor to announce the new name and shield to our fans,” Beckham, owner of the Miami team, said in a statement.
“We are taking another important step to establish our club and today marks an important moment in the history of the Miami International Soccer Club.
The Miami Inter is scheduled to start playing in 2020 at a temporary venue until its stadium, with a capacity of 25,000 spectators, called “Miami Freedom Park”, is completed one year later.
