Beckham’s offer is part of the « All In Challenge » in which athletes and celebrities come up with special fan experiences to raise money for selected charities.

Along with getting a chance to form a team to play with the former Manchester United midfielder, the winner will have lunch with Beckham and watch an Inter Miami match from the owner’s suite.

In a video, the 44-year-old Beckham challenged his former clubs Manchester United, Real Madrid and Paris Saint-Germain to join in the charity effort.

The winner will be chosen from a raffle with fans able to purchase 10 entries for $10.

In addition to Beckham, Austin FC co-owner Matthew McConaughey has offered up his suite at Darrell K Royal Stadium for a fan and a guest to share a special experience with the Oscar winner at a University of Texas football game. And actor/LAFC co-owner Will Ferrell will also have a lucky fan to sit with him in the LAFC owners’ box during a match.

MLS is also offering up a one-off prize with a fan getting a chance to replace commissioner Don Garber’s name on the game ball when the league returns to action and on the 2021 MLS All-Star game ball, which also includes a VIP All-Star weekend trip.

A number of high-profile athletes have stepped up to join the cause, including six-time Super Bowl champion quarterback Tom Brady, who is offering tickets to his first home game with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, dinner and/or a workout plus his game jersey and cleats.

Other prizes include batting practice and dinner with New York Yankees slugger Aaron Judge, a chance to play in the NBA Celebrity All-Star Game or appear on the cover of Sports Illustrated.
