FROM the league that brought you exotic names such as LA Galaxy, Miami Fusion, Tampa Bay Mutiny and DC United, a new power has arisen. David Beckham’s new MLS franchise will be called Inter Miami CF.
Although the name sounds like it is a reference to Serie A’s famous Inter, it is actually a nod to Miami’s Spanish-speaking community. The club’s full name is Club Internacional de Fútbol Miami.
“This is such a proud day for myself and for the entire team,” Beckham said in a press release. “We are taking another important step in establishing our club and today marks an important moment in the history of Club Internacional de Fútbol Miami.”
