David Beckham Puts Bum On Seats

by | 19th, August 2007

DAVID Beckham makes his first ever start in a Major Indy Soccer World’s League match. The crowd goes… And one day it might go again:

Playing before a record crowd of 66,237, Beckham made his first Major League Soccer start and set up a pair of goals by Carlos Pavon in the first eight minutes. But the New York Red Bulls rallied for a wild 5-4 win over the Galaxy when Juan Pablo Angel scored his second goal of the game in the 88th minute.

Giants Stadium is nearly empty for most Red Bulls’ games—the team’s average of 11,573 for its first 10 home matches was next to last in the league. The crowd that came out for Beckham was the largest in franchise history and the largest there for a U.S. league game since the Cosmos drew 70,312 against Fort Lauderdale on June 22, 1980.

Day-vid puts bums on seats. Often his own bum on the bench. But point made…
