MUMBAI: Football lovers in India can tune in to DSport for live action from Major League Soccer season 2018 that kicks off on 21 February 2018. DSport said it would broadcast the football event live to bring live sports content from around the world to audiences in India.

Football superstar, former England and Manchester United great David Beckham finally launched his long-awaited Miami major League super franchise. Miami has long been identified as a potential Major League Soccer expansion area, but it took Beckham nearly four years just to get Major League Soccer club to Miami but finally, he got the Global sport to a global city.

Miami Beckham United, the investment group headed by Beckham, plans to build a $200 million 25,000-seat stadium in Miami’s Over town neighborhood. Beckham, who retired in May 2013 after a brief stint with Paris Saint-Germaine, played in the MLS for five seasons until November 2012.

Beckham has said he hoped to entice “big stars” to his new venture. The Miami team is just one of the five new expansion teams as the soccer league looks to expand to at least 24 teams by 2020.

By 2020, the additions of Atlanta United, Minnesota United, Los Angeles FC and a new franchise in Nashville will see Major League Soccer have 24 teams competing for the title. In December 2017, the Nashville expansion team was announced.

Miami will be the 25th team and will play their debut season in MLS in 2020.
