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.

Beckham's side, previously just refereed to as Futbol Miami, will be called Inter Miami Club de Futbol.

The crest is pink, black and white, featuring two herons and a sun with seven rays - which are a "homage" to the ex-England captain's career.

The crest, which also appears on a front-page ad in Wednesday's print edition of the Miami Herald, is nearly identical to the designs that were posted to the U.S. Trademark and Patent Office last month.

Inter Miami owner and president of football operations Beckham told the club's website: "This is such a proud day for myself and for the entire team".

Given the current upside momentum, this price level could easily be achieved later today especially if additional U.S. Gulf coast weakened, offsetting support from forecasts of lower U.S. inventories and sanctions against Iran.

On Tuesday, Spanish league La Liga gave the green light for a controversial overseas match to take place on U.S. soil, with Girona "hosting" Bercelona in Miami, following a 15-year deal being made with American company Relevent. Inter Miami CF will be the shortened version of the team name.

However, the design and the name were not without their fans, many welcoming a football team to the state, which will be its second in the MLS after Orlando City. At the bottom of the logo is the roman numeral MMXX, which translates to 2020, the year the team is scheduled to begin play. "It's an honour to announce the new name and crest to our fans".

Beckham's long-touted MLS franchise was finally granted a league licence at a lavish ceremony in January, and while it is expected that their permanent home might not be ready until 2021, MLS commissioner Don Garber has said that they will take to the pitch at a temporary venue as soon as 2020.

Voters will be asked in November whether to allow the city to negotiate the sale of the Melreese Country Club golf course to Beckham and Miami business partner Jorge Mas for the development of Miami Freedom Park.
