On Monday, Beckham and his partners held a joint news conference at the Adrienne Arsht Center for the Performing Arts to unveil their MLS team in Miami.
Beckham also noted that he is interested in bringing homegrown, South Florida talent to his MLS team.
Beckham had the option of purchasing an MLS expansion franchise at a reduced price of $25m written into his contract when he opted to play his football across the Atlantic and signed for LA Galaxy from Real Madrid in 2007. Beckham played 118 times for the Galaxy, scored 20 goals and helped them to back-to-back league titles in 2011 and 2012.
"When I was awarded the team there was only one city for me".
"It is with tremendous pride that we welcome Miami to Major League Soccer", Garber added.
"I joined the Galaxy in 2007 because I realised the long-term potential of this league", the 42-year-old said.
"People say this is a city that is built on dreams".
This won't be Miami's first MLS franchise.
All of the major players in Beckham's owner group were present, including prominent Miami businessmen Jorge and Jose Mas, who joined the effort in December.
Nearly at the same time as David was starting his MLS career, Marcelo Claure, now a SoftBank board member, committed to bring Major League Soccer to Miami. "There were times we thought this wasn't going to happen but today we finally get to celebrate".
So what do we know about his new team so far?
The Beckham group had two different plans for waterside stadium venues defeated and were unable to secure a deal for a third location close to the Miami Marlins baseball arena.
Along with Jorge and José Mas, the addition last month of Softbank founder and CEO Masayoshi Son completed the club's ownership group as a formidable, worldwide team of industry titans.
The latest proposed site is in the Overtown neighbourhood where the group has purchased six acres of land and has an agreement for three more acres after a deal with Miami Dade County authorities.
