Last updated on .From the section Football
David Beckham's Major League Soccer team will be called Club Internacional de Futbol Miami - or Inter Miami CF - and the club's crest has been unveiled.
Inter Miami will make their MLS debut in 2020, after being awarded an expansion contract in January.
The crest is pink, black and white, featuring two herons and a sun with seven rays - which are a "homage" to the ex-England captain's career.
"This is such a proud day for myself and for the entire team," said Beckham.
The former Manchester United, Real Madrid, Paris St-Germain and AC Milan midfielder, who is team owner and president, added: "We are taking another important step in establishing our club and today marks an important moment in the history of Club Internacional de Futbol Miami."
Managing owner Jorge Mas said: "Our city and our fans draw their strength from the dreams of a global population that calls Miami home.
"It is only fitting that our name pays tribute to the inclusiveness that makes us who we are."
The crest appeared on the front page of Wednesday's Miami Herald.
The boy has done good... nothing negative needs to be said

I don't see what's crap about that.
David asked me for recommendations, I said "the steak is great, lobster freshly caught, how about the ribs?"
"Oh, Victoria will just have the salad." replied David.
Er...I'll get my Sarong
