"We have a real opportunity to not just come up with any kind of name. It might be something very organic, very basic, but it might be something different
"We kind of know in our minds what we would like. But we want the people involved, so we want the fans involved in picking the name, we want the fans involved in picking the colours. That's how we see our club. We're a family club. But we're a club of the people," the former England captain added.
A group of fans, calling themselves the Southern Legion, cheered and waved signs and banners, thanking Beckham for bringing an MLS team to Miami.
