Former England football captain David Beckham has challenged his former clubs Manchester United, Real Madrid and Paris Saint German to join in the charity effort.
The 44-year-old who is now co-owner of Major League Soccer’s Inter-Miami was reported by Reuters to have spoken in a video, giving fans a chance to play a five-a-side charity match and raise funds to help feed those in need during the novel coronavirus pandemic.
The offer is part of the “All In Challenge” in which athletes and celebrities come up with special fan experiences to raise money for selected charities.
The source further disclosed that along with getting a chance to form a team to play with the former Manchester United midfielder, the winner will have lunch with Beckham and watch an Inter-Miami match from the owner’s suite.
It is expected that the winner will be chosen from a raffle with fans able to purchase 10 entries for $10.
MLS is also offering up a one-off prize with a fan getting a chance to replace commissioner Don Garber’s name on the game ball when the league returns to action and on the 2021 MLS All-Star game ball, which also includes a VIP All-Star weekend trip.
