The Beckham Effect - promo shot

“The Beckham Effect" to cover David Beckham's MLS journey from LA to Miami

Nearly 13 years before David Beckham-owned expansion club Inter Miami CF played their first Major League Soccer game, the global soccer superstar and cultural icon made his debut as an LA Galaxy player.

To take stock of the journey, “The Beckham Effect,” a Hock Films production, will soon be unveiled. The 45-minute documentary will make its premiere Friday at 9:30 pm ET on FS1, with various air dates leading up to Inter Miami’s home debut March 14 against the Galaxy. 

Watch the trailer:

The documentary features exclusive interviews with Landon Donovan, Don Garber, Bruce Arena, Steve Nash, Kyle Martino and more as Beckham’s latest MLS chapter gets underway. From the ups-and-downs of his six-year tenure with LA and its impact on the sports landscape to Beckham’s legacy stateside, plenty of ground is covered.
