David Beckham’s team Inter Miami CF make their MLS bow against LA FC

David Beckham was in good company as he witnessed his team Inter Miami CF mark their first match in the Major League Soccer (MLS) on Sunday, when they went up against Los Angeles FC.

The football president, 44, was joined by his wife Victoria, 45, his eldest son Brooklyn, 20, and his girlfriend Nicola Peltz, 25, as they watched the game unfold from the crowd at the Banc of California Stadium.

The former Manchester United midfielder has seen six years pass since officially announcing he would exercise an agreement written into the contract signed in 2007 following his move from Real Madrid to LA Galaxy that, for just $25million (£19.5m), an MLS franchise could be his.

Fashion designer Victoria was every inch the doting partner as she cosied up to her husband of 20 years in a sweet Instagram snap, alongside the caption: ‘I’m so excited!!! So many kisses @davidbeckham @intermiamicf and Team DB!! x VB.’ [sic]

The businessman was showered with love from his close friend, celebrity chef Gordon Ramsay, who appeared to give David a prep talk at one point.

Media personality David’s best pal of over 30 years, Dave Gardner, and his long-term partner Liv Tyler were also in attendance at the star-studded game.

The father-of-four, who shares Brooklyn, Romeo, 17, Cruz, 15, and Harper, eight, with Posh Spice, beamed with pride as he boldly sported a blazer with the team’s logo emblazoned across it.

Cutting a typically dapper appearance, the Leytonstone native tied in his smart jacket with a crisp white shirt, a striped tie and dark trousers. 

Victoria ensured she didn’t like her man down in the fashion stakes as she nailed business chic in a corduroy trousers, a pale blue blouse and a green patterned blazer styled as a cape. 

David’s project was almost doomed to failure with the inability to find a suitable stadium site almost killing the dream before it began.

Thankfully, with the introduction into the ownership group of local construction magnates the Mas brothers, all the political red-tape has been navigated. Well, for now at least.  

The plans to move into a $1bn business park and sports complex remain in flux but are top of that particular agenda. 

‘We are just thrilled to be at this point,’ said sportsman David earlier in the week, clearly enthused at the prospect of battles on the pitch, rather than the courtroom, to help occupy his time.  

Los Angeles FC is widely considered as one of the most dangerous teams of the last campaign who won the Supporters Shield – given to the best record in the normal season – before falling short in the play-off’s. 

Carlos Vela, formerly of Arsenal, scored 34 goals last year and was named the League’s top player. 

For Miami, with just two friendlies and some behind-closed-doors matches to use as preparation, this is a step into the unknown.
