In February 2014, the league announced that David Beckham had exercised the option to purchase a MLS club and that the consortium of investors led by the former English footballer would set up a franchise in Miami, also investing in the construction of a new Stadium (considered essential by the alloy). Beckham’s partners are the Mas brothers (urban real estate developers), the Japanese Masayoshi Son (web magnate) and the Bolivian Marcelo Claure (telecommunications magnate and owner of Club Bolívar).
On January 29, 2018 Miami was announced as the 25th participating team in the MLS starting from the 2020 season. On September 5 of the same year it was made official that the name of the franchise would be Club Internacional de Fútbol Miami, commonly abbreviated to Inter Miami CF.
In July 2018, the owners of Inter Miami announced the construction of a 25,000-seat proprietary stadium, Miami Freedom Park, which will be built on a site near Miami International Airport. The inauguration of the plant is scheduled for 2022.
On 30 December 2019, Uruguayan Diego Alonso was hired as the club’s new manager. On March 1, 2020, the team made its MLS debut by losing 1-0 to Los Angeles Football Club; will play at home in Fort Lauderdale pending the completion of the stadium scheduled for the year 2022.
The logo, made with the style and colors that recall the Art Deco tradition of the city, is a circle with two great white herons crossing their paws to form the M of Miami. Between the two herons there is a sun partially eclipsed with seven rays, in homage to the number that David Beckham wore as a footballer. The circle also features the full name of the club and the Roman numeral MMXX, indicating the club’s inaugural season.
