FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla. (AP) David Beckham’s new MLS team will play its first home match against his former club.

Inter Miami officials announced Wednesday that the club's home debut will be March 14 at 2:30 p.m. against the LA Galaxy. That means Inter Miami will begin its inaugural season on the road, since the 2020 MLS season is set to begin in late February.

The Galaxy are a fitting home debut opponent for Inter Miami: Beckham has his new team in large part because of an arrangement he struck when playing in Los Angeles. A contract he signed with the Galaxy in 2007 gave Beckham the right to start an expansion franchise for $25 million, and in 2013, he announced that Miami was where he wanted to put that team.
