However, as with most new sports franchises in American sports, their was a roadblock with finding a suitable location to build a new stadium.
The 42-year-old, who spent six seasons with LA Galaxy, has admitted the prolonged saga caused him 'slight pain' but he is now excited to begin a new chapter in his career.
"It has definitely been years in the making," said Beckham. "I have definitely got a lot older and greyer since the first announcement four years ago.
"It is an exciting time to become an owner, along with the other owners we have with the team - it is very special.
"We have had a few bumps in the road, which is normal in business. Nothing is smooth sailing but sometimes you have to go through times like this to actually feel more rewarded at the end of it.
"If I hadn't gone through four years of slight pain, at times, then I wouldn't have met the ownership group that we have.
"Good things come to those who wait."
