Miami MLS Team Reveals Name, Team Crest

posted by Jessi Minneci - 

The upcoming Major League Soccer team in Miami unveiled its name and team crest early Wednesday on Twitter.

Four years after announcing his intentions to bring an MLS team to Miami, David Beckham and his partners were awarded a franchise in January.

The team will be called Club Internacional de Futbol and is expected to begin play in 2020.

Beckham said he wanted to bring a "South American flavor" to the team's look, but with a "modern twist."

South Florida previously had an MLS team from 1998-2001, but it folded because of poor attendance. Unlike the Miami Fusion, which played its home games at Lockhart Stadium in Fort Lauderdale, Beckham's team will play in the heart of the city of Miami.

Voters will be asked in November whether to allow the city to negotiate the sale of the Melreese Country Club golf course to Beckham and Miami business partner Jorge Mas for the development of Miami Freedom Park.
