Co-founder of Inter Miami, David Beckham is in a happy mood as he is set to fly 16 family and friends to watch his new MLS team’s first home game at a cost of up to £250,000.

The report added Beckham will lodge his family and friends at the five-star Soho Beach House before next Saturday’s match.
According to a source, Beckham wants to celebrate the acquisition of his new club with family and friends. Also to share with everyone present the progress made at the club so far. It was learned that Beckham has invited the parents and girlfriends of his sons Brooklyn, who turned 21 last Wednesday, and17-year-old Romeo to a suite at the stadium in Fort Lauderdale.
A source said: “No expense will be spared. It’s a hugely exciting time and he wanted to share it with everyone.”
Beckhams’ family estate in the Cotswolds was filled last night with guests trooping in to celebrate Brooklyn’s 21st birthday. Among those expected were Elton John, Cara Delevingne, Gordon Ramsay, Guy Ritchie, and Emma Bunton.
Inter Miami lost their first league match 1-0 in Los Angeles last Sunday and suffered another defeat last night away at DC United. The club, however, scored their first-ever goal in Major League Soccer in the 2-1 defeat by DC United.
The new MLS side recorded their first goal in the second minute of the game at Audi Field when Rodolfo Pizarro opened the scoring after finishing off a well-worked counter-attack led by Robbie Robinson from close range sparking wild scenes.
Inter Miami thought they had doubled their lead but had a goal ruled out by VAR due to a handball by Roman Torres in the build-up. Things got worse just moments later though when the referee sent Torres off, meaning Inter Miami had to play most of the second half with 10 men.
DC United made the advantage count with Yamil Asad equalising from the penalty spot after Edison Flores was brought down in the box. The hosts then hit the winner two minutes later when Frederic Brillant pounced on a loose ball inside the box and fired into the roof of the net.
It means Inter Miami have now played two and lost two in their debut MLS campaign, having also lost to Los Angeles FC in the opening weekend of the season.
