How much money does David Beckham have?
David Beckham is the richest (ex) footballer in the world with an estimated fortune of $450 million dollars and displaces his competition, such as Lionel Messi or Cristiano Ronaldo, to second and third place. Through lucrative advertising contracts, Becks was able to amass a considerable fortune. He was the face of many big brands such as Armani, Adidas, Pepsi, Calvin Klein, Gillette and is still considered one of the most successful advertising figures worldwide. No one could market themselves as skillfully as he did.
Beckham is a managing director in several of his own companies. His company, Footwork Productions, handles his sponsorship assignments and manages all of Beckham’s employment and image rights. In 2012, the company generated 17.6 million dollars. Between 2002 and 2009, Footwork Productions is said to have earned him around 90 million dollars. In addition, Beckham receives 8.1 million dollars annually through an endorsement deal with Adidas. With his autobiographies “David Beckham: My World” and “David Beckham: My Side” he earned millions more. His own perfume earned him around 10 million dollars on the US market.
Together with his wife Viktoria Beckham (ex Spice Girl) and his four children, he leads a very luxurious life, but is also very involved in various charity campaigns. For example, he donated his entire salary from last year as a professional footballer at Paris-Saint Germain (3.9 million dollars) to children in need.
David Beckham – From Manchester United to superstar
David Robert Joseph Beckham was born on 2 May 1975 in Ley stone / London and became a professional footballer for Manchester United in the 94/95 season at the age of 17. Under Sir Alex Ferguson, the coach of Man U at the time, Beckham was able to secure a place in the starting eleven with his performances. He became a fan favorite and won six English league titles, two FA Cups and the Champions League with the Red Devils in the 98/99 season, followed by the Intercontinental Cup. That same year, he married “Posh Spice” Victoria Beckham. From 2000 to 2006, Becks captained the England national team.
Transfer to Real Madrid
In the 02/03 season, Beckham lost his regular place in the Manchester team due to an injury. In addition, there were problems with his coach Sir Alex Ferguson, who after losing a game against Arsenal angrily shot away a football boot in the dressing room and inflicted a catalytic converter over Beck’s eye. The wound even had to be stitched. There was an ice age between the two and one had to go. Fergusson wanted to sell Beckham to Barcelona, but the latter signed a new contract with Spanish rivals Real Madrid on July 1, 2003. The transfer fee was 37.5 million dollars.
Since his shirt number 7 was already occupied by Râul, David chose the shirt number 23 after his sporting role model Michael Jordan. Real Madrid was able to earn around 650,000 dollars on the first day of shirt sales alone. The jerseys were completely sold out. He finally became an advertising icon. The four-year contract gave Beckham an income of $7.94 million per year. From a sporting point of view, it was not his heyday, but in his last year (2007) Becks won the Spanish championship with the “Royals”.
Moved to MLS (Major League Soccer) to LA Galaxy
When his contract expired after four years at Real, Beckham moved to Los Angeles Galaxy in the American soccer league MLS. He played five seasons with LA Galaxy and won the MLS Cup in 2009 and 2010 at his farewell in 2011 + 2012. The salary was 4.7 million dollars per year plus a share of the income of LA Galaxy, which brought in an additional 5 million dollars in 36 years.
Short appearance at PSG
After the end of his contract with LA Galaxy, which ran until 2012, Beckham played for Paris Saint Germain from 31.01.2013 to 30.06.2013. However, he did not earn a single euro at the million-dollar club, which employed stars such as Zlatan Ibrahimovic. He donated the entire proceeds of about 3.9 million euros to a charitable children’s aid organization. In his last professional football station, Beckham won the French championship at the end of his career.
Inter Miami: Own football team in the MLS.
His own football career is not enough for him. Beckham wants to rebuild his own team in Major League Soccer. Together with investors, Miami is planning its own team with a new stadium soon. The team will compete in the 2020 season. The plan is to lure prestigious players such as Ronaldo or Messi to America. For the time being, it remains to be seen how these will be financed with the salary cap customary in US sports.
At the beginning of May 2014, the US state of Florida passed a new law that is intended to support professional sports teams. Becks can count on millions more from the state to make his dream come true. At the end of 2017, he brought the first investors on board and promptly bought a large plot of land in Miami so that a stadium can be built, which will have 25,000 spectators and is scheduled for completion in 2021. Current investors include Jorge and Jose Mas (Mastec), Masayoshi Son (Softbank), Simon Fuller (producer) and Marcelo Claure (Springs). The historic first game of Inter Miami took place on 01.03.2020 and thus the MLS start was successful after years of preparation.
