The soccer news starts with Miami's MLS expansion team getting a name. The team will begin play in 2020 as Club Internacional de Futbol Miami, or Inter Miami for short. The club also announced a motto: "‘Libertas, Unitas, Fortuna’.
In a press statement, Miami MLS president of football operations David Beckham said, "Club Internacional de Fútbol Miami is a name that celebrates the incredible energy of one of the most exciting cities in the world - one that is diverse, passionate and ambitious - a city that has welcomed me and so many others, so warmly. Our club will be a home for all – no matter where you are from or how you got here."
Also in the soccer news, after a breakdown in negotiations over commercial rights, Denmark has called in lower division and futsal players as replacements for their September games. FIFPro, the world soccer players union, released a statement backing the regular Denmark players who offered to play the September friendlies under their old deal.
"FIFPro would like to express complete solidarity with the Danish national team players as they seek to negotiate fair and proportionate terms with the national football association. The Danish players have acted responsibly throughout these negotiations and FIFPro strongly believes their offer to extend the terms of the previous deal on a temporary basis is in the best interests of all football stakeholders."
