Miami Will Be the New Soccer Hotspot
The USA have never been a country of soccer for a very long time. But the World Cup in the USA and numerous great players have brought this sport into the hearts of Americans. One of the best-known ambassadors was David Beckham. The glamorous British player brought what the game needs in the USA. He played for a while in the country and now wants to help soccer in the United States to make his breakthrough with his own club called Inter Miami.
England – Spain – The United States
It shouldn’t be too difficult for him. After all, the 45-year-old Englishman has long been a legend of this sport. His free kicks made him a superstar at his first big club Manchester United where he has started the career. When he had achieved everything there, he left it for one of the best Spanish club Real Madrid.
The career of David Beckham got extra points from his personal life as well, so the marriage with the former Spice Girl singer Victoria Beckham was undoubtedly beneficial. His popularity continued after the end of his active career. He used his contacts in the United States and participated in the Inter Miami soccer club. He would now like to develop this into one of the best in the world. His public appearances with his wife caused the photographers to rotate while he was still active, and that are not going to change in the future.
Miami is a part of the American Major Soccer League. The first highly anticipated game was lost, but the hype was huge. Beckham himself was present at the Los Angeles stadium and cheered on his team. However, another great man is involved here. Don Garber, the boss of this Major League, broke all the rules about 20 years ago. At that time he made a last attempt to present soccer in the USA in a broad-based manner. For this purpose, he brought the most famous soccer player of that time to the USA. But Garber changed the rules to pay him. He invented the thing that is known as the Beckham rule today.
It allows clubs to hire a player whose salary may exceed the upper limit. In the meantime, even three players per team are exempt from the salary limits. Back then, Beckham took an advantage of the hour and secured the right to buy a club for $25 million. The superstar pulled this option and is now building Inter Miami into a top team. A new stadium is already under construction. In 2022 the team can play there. That guarantees Miami many additional tourists, because Beckham wants to attract numerous superstars to Florida. Don Garber eliminated the most critical obstacles. Now the British player is looking for attractive members for his team. The rumor mill has been bubbling for months. Numerous stars have already confirmed that Beckham knocked on their door. Among them is the Brazilian superstar Neymar, for example. He has previously announced publicly that one day he will play safely in Miami. Miami therefore, still has reasonable prospects of becoming a center of international soccer.
