David Beckham’s six-year long wait to watch his Major League Soccer club make its home debut, which supposed to have ended on Saturday, has been extended by the league due to coronavirus outbreak.
Beckham’s club was supposed to hosted the Los Angeles Galaxy, the MLS club where the former England and Manchester United star played from 2007 through 2012, in its first match at its temporary home in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.
But the entire league has joined all major North American sports leagues and shut down its season for 30 days due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.
That left Inter Miami owner and president, Beckham and his wife, Victoria, to take their four children to the empty venue and post a video on Instagram.
“Special day showing the family what we’ve built,” Beckham posted as the camera made a 360-degree tour of empty Inter Miami Stadium while music of Spice Girls , his wife’s former group blared through the loudspeakers.”
“In times like these when we are reminded of the things that are truly important in life,” Beckham posted on Instagram. “Our health. Our loved ones and looking after those that need support in our communities.
“In these moments, sports take a back seat. We must all listen to expert advice and do the right thing. Stay safe and look out for yourselves and your families.”
