At 18:30 UK time David Beckham's was introduced today in front of 11,000 screaming fans and over 700 members of the media to LA Galaxy.
Dressed in a smart grey suit and white tie, Beckham was beaming from his warm welcome at the press conference.
He held his white number 23 shirt at the end of the conference to rapturous applause from the crowd.
Beckham expressed his gratitude to the eager fans, some of whom, has waited hours in the LA heat, for a glimpse of their hero.
"First I would like to say how honoured I am, how many people came here to see me.
In my career, I played for the two biggest clubs in the world, Manchester United and Real Madrid, and I have played for 11 years for my country - and still am playing for my country - and I've always looked for challenges in my career and something exciting.
My family have now moved to Los Angeles. Something we are looking forward to, something we are very proud of - in our life everything is perfect," Beckham added.
Beckham slipped up when addressing the crowd, getting his "soccer" - the American name for football - confused with "football", which is what they call their helmetted version of the game.
"For me the most important thing is my family. The second most important thing is the foo... The soccer - I will get use to that. I'm sorry," he laughed.
He added that he believed that soccer could be as big in the States as it is elsewhere in the world. I doubt it but for his sake I hope so.
Victoria was also there looking stunning in a clinging pink dress. She arrived several moments before David, with Simon Fuller to greeted fans.
Has Beckham mania hit the United States and can be responsible for turning 'soccer' into a mainstream sport? Part of me hopes so, the other part wants him back in Europe playing at the highest level.
