Romeo Beckham signs with Fort Lauderdale CF

Next up: Beekeeping.

Romeo Beckham, 19, has signed his first professional soccer contract with Fort Lauderdale CF, which he proudly confirmed on social media.

“Footballer for @fortlauderdalecf,” Romeo’s Instagram profile now reads. He also shared a photo of himself on the field with the caption, “Follow your dreams.”

He could make his debut on the field as early as Saturday, according to Miami Total Futbol.

Fort Lauderdale CF is League One of the United Soccer League, according to ESPN. It is also the sister team to Inter Miami CF, which is co-owned by Romeo’s dad, David Beckham.

Speaking of his dad, Romeo has big cleats to fill as he follows in the footsteps of his global superstar pops on the field.

Beckham, 46, signed his first pro contract with Manchester United when he was just 17 years old in 1992. He went on to play pro for 21 years with several teams including United, Real Madrid and the LA Galaxy.

Beckham, who retired in 2013, has six Premier League titles, two Football Association Cups and one Champions League title under his belt.

Victoria Beckham revealed that Romeo had started training professionally during an interview with Vogue in March.

“Romeo has been training with the team over here every day, because ultimately that’s what he wants to do,” Victoria, 47, said.

She was also the first to congratulate Romeo on social media, writing, “We are so proud of you Romeo x,” on his latest Instagram photo.
