He is a great sporting personality with an international audience.... It's great for this city which is already the top tourist destination in the world and where 10 percent of jobs are in the tourist industry," Reuters reports.
While on the team, Beckham has said he will stay in a hotel in town; his family, including Posh Spice, will continue to reside in London. He will donate his salary to a local children's charity.
