Saturday, March 7th, 2019 marked the day that David Beckham‘s statue was unveiled at Dignity Health Sports Park in Carson, CA prior to the club’s season opener. Although it was raining, the presentation of the bronze figure made it a beautiful day. “David Beckham in Action” consists of a 9-foot figure on top of a base that measures 8′ x 5′ x 4′. The bronze figure has his team colors and the granite base includes a photo image of the international sports star.
The statue is the first for an MLS player who was also the first well-known European player to join the league. Beckham led the team to back-to-back championships in 2011 and 2012. The statue unveiling capped off a busy weekend for Beckham who also opened a soccer field for underprivileged children in downtown Los Angeles.
