Romeo Beckham, son of David Beckham, has signed his first professional contract making a football transfer to Fort Lauderdale FC, the reserve team for his father’s Major League Soccer club Inter Miami. Fort Lauderdale FC is a member of the USL Championship, a men’s soccer league founded in 2011 and currently sanctioned as a division two professional league by the USSF.
The transfer news was announced on Instagram by the 19-year-old with a post of his picture in uniform. He captioned the image “follow your dreams” and also updated his bio that reads “footballer for @fortlauderdaleFC.” His mother fashion designer Victoria Beckham commented on the same post with an expression of familial pride, “We are so proud of you Romeo,” further all but confirming that the teenager has signed his first senior deal.
Earlier this week, Romeo Beckham signed the first contract with Fort Lauderdale FC and could be seen making his senior debut as early as Saturday’s home game against Chattanooga Red Wolves SC.
According to multiple sources, in recent weeks, Romeo has been training with both Inter Miami and Fort Lauderdale CF as his versatility as a right-sided player makes him useful in both offense and defense.
In making the move to Lauderdale, the younger Beckham becomes the second son of a former Manchester United player to join their ranks. In an interview earlier this year, Victoria Beckham hinted at the deal, “Romeo has been training with the team over here every day because ultimately that’s what he wants to do.”
