David Beckham dropped some big news on Miami this morning (February 5, 2014)!

The soccer stud announced his plans to launch a new Major League Soccer franchise at PAMM Art Museum on in Miami, Florida.

Beckham, who retired from football in May 2013, unveiled his new project Wednesday after confirming he will establish a Major League Soccer franchise in Miami, Florida.

"I want to create a team that is personal to me," Beckham told reporters Wednesday.

"I know this city is ready for soccer, football, and this is going to be successful. I know there was a team 10 years ago which folded. I wanted to create a team that can be very personal. I want to make it my own team. We are very excited, Miami is a vibrant city with a lot of passion. I am looking forward to spending a lot more time and my family being here."

When Beckham signed for Los Angeles Galaxy in 2007, a clause was inserted into his contract which gave him the option to create a new MLS team for $25 million.
