Every Big-Name Star David Beckham Should Add To The Miami MLS Franchise

David Beckham has expressed his desire to add some big names to the Miami MLS team when it eventually opens for business. We have some thoughts.

The Miami MLS team is expected to compete in American soccer's highest division someday, eventually, probably. Because of the proposed team's enviable location and its connection to David Beckham, some big names are already being associated with the team, which doesn't even have a name yet.


The18 thinks that not nearly enough big names are being associated with this team, in any capacity. In terms of players, coaches, celebrity fans, minority owners, hangers-on, spokespeople and what have you. So, we compiled a list of every person who should be associated with this team in some way, shape or form.
