Very tasteful. Something tells us that marque on slick Adidas merchandise is going to score highly with the football hipster crowd.

Inter Miami has yet to find a home and in November the city's voters will go to the polls for a referendum on a no-bid lease to build the club's stadium for a reported $1bn.

Four years after announcing his intentions to bring a team to Miami, Beckham and his partners were awarded a franchise in January. "Join us on a journey that has only just begun", it said.

The new club will be called "Club Internacional de Fútbol Miami" or simply Inter Miami CF and it signifies "Miami's worldwide, diverse, inclusive, creative and ambitious spirit", according to a club statement.

The club on Wednesday morning unveiled its team crest, an emblem it believes "represents Miami's worldwide, diverse, inclusive, creative and ambitious spirit". The club revealed their name, the club crest, the colours they'll be playing in and the year they'll be starting in the MLS. "It is only fitting that our name pays tribute to the inclusiveness that makes us who we are".

Jose Mourinho 'gets suspended jail sentence' for tax fraud
Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho says he places no blame on Paul Pogba for his penalty miss against Burnley . According to Celebrity Networth, Mourinho is worth $50 million (£39 million) and earns $27 million (£21 million).

"This is such a proud day for myself and for the entire team", team owner and president of operations David Beckham said in a release.

The team's name, Club Internacional de Fútbol Miami, celebrates Miami as "a truly global location that welcomes and embraces all cultures and communities", and is a nod to "Miami's worldwide, diverse, inclusive, creative and ambitious spirit", according to a club statement.

The letter continued: "Above all, it marks another step we have taken on the journey to realising this dream, together".

The club also unveiled its crest, a circular logo including two great white herons - an emblem it says celebrates Miami's "international, diverse, inclusive, creative and ambitious spirit".

Fellow MLS Owner and Chairman Marcelo Claure commented: "We are extremely excited to offer the team's identity to Miami and the world".
