David Beckham’s MLS team is finally becoming a reality

Beckham has been pushing for his Miami-based Major League Soccer team to come to fruition for a very long time. From confusion over the location of the team’s stadium to a newly-pursued option to place it within a multi-sports complex, the ex-Manchester United and Real Madrid star’s dreams of bringing an MLS team to the city have – until recently at least – appeared quixotic.

That new location proposal appears far more realistic however, with the team proposing to pay millions per year in rent, and even more in tax to the city for the privilege to use the site for what would be called Freedom Park.

Something that does appear to have been settled however is the club’s name, colours and crest, if a leaked image is to be believed.

According to a report in the Miami Herald, the new side will be known as Internacional Club de Futbol Miami, and the colours will be what appears to be the Miami Vice inspired black, pink and white.

The Herald reports that the crest for the team was submitted to the US Trademark and Patent Office on Wednesday by the same company which filed trademarks connected to Beckham’s ownership group.

The crest features the Roman numerals for 2020, the year which it is expected that they will enter MLS, as well as two flamingos which are rather fetching.

Unsurprisingly, this leaked design has gone down a treat with football fans, particularly those in the American city
