David Beckham

Where is David Beckham now?

One of the most recognisable people on the planet, David Beckham called time on an extremely successful playing career at the end of the 2012-13 season after winning league titles in four different countries.

His impressive trophy haul includes six Premier League titles, two FA Cup wins, the UEFA Champions League trophy, the La Liga title, two MLS Cups, and Ligue 1 with his last club Paris St Germain.

He also had a distinguished international career with England winning 115 caps and scoring 17 goals.

Beckham was also the national team captain between 2000 and 2006 and featured in three FIFA World Cups, scoring in each of them.

Since retiring from playing, Beckham has continued to live his life in the public eye and has been involved in a variety of projects, both charitable and commercial.

He has fronted the Sainsburys Active Kids Campaign as well as appearing in adverts for Sky TV.

Beckham is also a brand ambassador for other global companies such as H&M, Breitling, Adidas and Haig Club whiskey.

He is also the global ambassador for Chinese football and continues to work as a UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador.

In 2016, Beckham’s joint venture company Seven Global brokered a deal to buy 50% of the classic British clothing company Kent & Curwen who own the rights to the Three Lions logo.

In February 2014 he announced that he would be exercising his option to purchase an MLS expansion team in Miami with partners including ex Spice Girls manager Simon Fuller.

After the MLS approved the new franchise in January 2018 Beckham’s Inter Miami CF team will join the MLS in January 2020.

In November 2015 as part of his charity work with UNICEF Beckham successfully played football in seven continents in seven days culminating in a match at Old Trafford where he briefly played alongside his eldest son Brooklyn.

At the 2016/17 PFA Awards, Beckham was presented with the PFA Merit Award for his achievements for club and country.

Away from football he has also dipped his toe into acting and made his debut in the 2015 short film Outlaws where he played a mysterious drifter and motorcycle stuntman who is being hunted by a crazed director, played by Harvey Keitel.

He also had a cameo role in King Arthur: Legend of the Sword which was directed by his friend Guy Ritchie.

Playing a disgruntled knight called Trigger, Beckham’s brief appearance was unfortunately panned on social media by fans and critics who said that his performance was extremely wooden.

In 2018 he joined up with L’Oreal to launch a new male grooming line called House 99 which ranges from hair products to moisturisers and everything else in-between.

Following the approval of his MLS franchise team, in 2019 Beckham joined his Class of 92 team-mates by investing into Salford City with a 10% stake.
