"It is with tremendous pride that we welcome Miami to Major League Soccer", Garber added. "People turn around to me after my career and say, 'What, are you going to go sit on the beach?"

"Bringing an MLS club to Miami has been a hell of a journey".

Nashville was recently awarded an expansion franchise, and when that team and Miami commence play it give MLS four franchises in the Southeast portion of the USA - with those clubs joining Orlando and Atlanta. I joined LA Galaxy in 2007 because I realised the potential in this league. After many trials and tribulations, and with the help of our incredible partners, here we are now announcing our franchise in the wonderful city of Miami. Today's announcement was made in both English and Spanish. Nashville will have to pay a reported $150m expansion fee to become the league's 24 team.

Beckham, who has four children with his wife, Victoria, said: "When you have children you want to protect them, you want to teach them".

'Miami is a vibrant city with a lot of passion, ' Beckham said.

"Our fan support has been relentless and that's what our club is going to be built on". Other members of Beckham's group include Sprint CEO Marcelo Claure, entertainment entrepreneur Simon Fuller and South Florida businessman Jorge Mas - who tried unsuccessfully to buy the Miami Marlins past year. Masayoshi Son is one of the leading technologists of our time and is revered for his innovative approach to business.

The Beckham group admitted that the club would not come into existence until 2018 at the earliest, as opposed to initial hopes to start in 2016 or 2017. Part of the deal is that Beckham's group will also build a training centre and an academy focused on developing local players. After eyeing locations along Miami's waterfront and next to Marlins Park, Beckham and his partners settled on a site in the Overtown neighborhood, close to downtown. Populous has also worked on numerous top soccer venues around the world, including the new stadium for Tottenham Hotspur, opening this year, and the expansion of Manchester City's Etihad Stadium in 2015.

The team is expected to join Major League Soccer in 2020, but they may begin life at a temporary home until the new stadium is built. "Our team and stadium will be the pride of Miami and create more jobs and attract even more visitors to our community".

"I want to thank commissioner Garber because he explained the plan of this league and where he wanted to take it".
