Beckham helping Los Angeles 2024 Olympic Games Bid
Even though David Beckham has been outside of the pitch for some time now, the Englishman continues being a mainstay of the media and he remains in the world of football but just not as a player.
It’s been over 2 years since Beckham hung up his boots from playing football at a competitive level but despite not being a performer, he still is a very busy person as he plays an important role for a number of various events and organizations.
Whilst sites such as transferrumours.co.uk keep on linking him back to a return to club football, Beckham has new roles to fill. He is a Goodwill Ambassador with a special focus on UNICEF's Sports for Development program, the Englishman is also a Beckham a founding member of the Malaria No More UK Leadership Council and there are plenty of other duties that the former Manchester United player has to fulfill.
The 40 year old millionaire decided to take up a new adventure as he accepted being an adviser for Los Angeles and their 2024 Olympic Games bid. LA officials opted to give him this role as David Beckham already has experience with these kinds of things as he assisted London back in 2012 for the Olympic Games of that year.
Beckham is a well-known figure who has a big influence specifically in London after having performed with LA Galaxy for over 4 years where he earned the love and support from the fans of the club.
A source close to Los Angeles said: “David has got so much experience; he worked with the London 2012 team and also on the bid to bring the 2018 football World Cup to England. On top of that he knows and loves LA. He lived here and ¬became a big part of its scene. His involvement in the bid is very much low-key. He’s staying behind the scenes.’’
