Leaked: Possible Names and Logo for Beckham's Miami Team

Categories: Sports

When David Beckham confirmed that he'd be bringing a Major League Soccer team back to Miami last week he unfortunately didn't give us any new details. You know, things like a team name, colors, or shield design.

Well, now the Palm Beach Post has obtained a couple of possible team names. The most developed of which seems to be "Miami Vice," which already has a shield and kit design in the works. Though, they likely won't be the final versions.

"Sources involved with the Beckham group told the Post of three potential identities: Miami Vice, Miami Current and an undisclosed name tied to a corporate sponsor," reports Matt Porter.

The Current seems about as bland as the Fusion, but it seems that the Vice might be the frontrunner.

Here's the potential shield and kit mock-ups (or as we call them in other American sports, the logo and uniform):

However, Porter stresses that the mock-ups were used to attract attention from both possible investors and local politicians and are not likely the final version.

Of course, there's no details as to whether the rights holders to the Miami Vice TV show would allow the name to be used.

.....................what other name would be MORE appropriate than MIAMI GLITTER......a totally faux sexy cosmetic application that quickly fades way and must continually be re-applied as it is not self-sustaining beauty nor INexpensive

of course the stadium MUST NOT have suficient PARKING

the motto would be "ALL THAT GLITTERs is NOT GOLD"

and the stadium finacinal must be a gigantic burden to the taxpayer YET with freebie stadium luxury skyboxes for the hollowheads like our own oH MARco ! politicos and their suckling like the PEREZs and ESCOBARs of MIAMI

and of course the WHOLE PARTY must end by next season just like the MARLINs fell off the radar AFTER the $526,ooo,ooo was sunk into that stadium

MAYBE then we can hire some second grade teacher BACK at livable wages

Take Me Out to the Cleaner


In general, as one surveys local debates about stadium construction in the United States, three basic arguments are employed to support using public money to build sports stadiums. First, proponents claim that building a new stadium will have a big impact on the economy, generating many new jobs and bringing new businesses to the area. However study after study has demonstrated that advocates of public spending on stadiums consistently exaggerate the benefits of sports to a local economy. people may love sports, but the vast majority of people never want to subsidize pro-sports with tax dollars, that why referendums kill the deal.

I'd rather it be Miami United. But I like the colors, very Florida Marlins.

Considering the "stuck in the 80's" image the Latino world has of us, it's completely appropriate.

You're a moron if you think that Beckham would ever, in a million years, agree to name his team the Miami Vice. Just idiotic.

Atlético Miami. Stop trying to make Miami all about South Beach... you can't build a local team by appealing mostly to tourists.

.....................to my knowledge the seminal basis for this conclusion is HOWARD COSELLs book I NEVER PLAYED THE GAME

look the current regime gets ALL the CREDIT and exposure and the costs are pushed into the FUTURE - right ?

MIAMI has a decrepit and failing SEWER system but we have a half-a-billion dollar baseball stadium and new soccer stadium coming and YET the original MIAMI ARENA has not yet been paid off replaced by the rent-free to the HEAT TRIPLE - A arena and some day soon the multi-hundred-million dollar taxpayer renovations to JOE ROBBIE stadium

NO ONE looks to those places like MIAMI with ALL these positive IMPACTs on the local economy - IT IS DRUGs that make MIAMI boom = period = factor out the drug industry and MIAMI is basically a TOURISTed cruise ship industry, UofM and a whole lot of grinding poverty and corrupt government
