Soccer icon and global celebrity David Beckham will make his debut for US soccer team LA Galaxy next month after a $250million deal – the biggest in history – to transfer from newly-crowned Spanish League champions Real Madrid.

The $1m-a-week midfielder and former captain of Englands international team (pictured here playing for his country) and his wife, ex-pop idol Victoria (Posh Spice of The Spice Girls), are certain to add Hollywood A-list status to their existing glossy magazine front cover existence.

There is now a chance for sports fans on Grand Bahama to get a small slice of the action.

An England shirt signed by the superstar (it comes with a letter of authenticity) will be one of the lots coming under the hammer at an auction at Taino Beach Resort restaurant, Jolly Roger Drive, on Friday June 29.

And for soccer fans there is the chance of landing a unique duo because another lot is a signed shirt from John Terry, the Chelsea central defender and the current England captain.

The auction comes at the closing party/dinner of the annual Premier League Soccer Camp which starts on June 25 at Freeport Rugby and Football Club. The dinner features a full European buffet, live entertainment and a raffle as part of the fun, AND the event is open to the public.

Fans of other sports are not neglected, particularly those who are part of the Canadian community on the island. Among other lots are a signed jersey from Chris Bosh, MVP of the Toronto Raptors (pictured here) and court-side seats at a Raptors game. There are also premium seats at the Leafs games for those hockey fans.

Tickets are only $30 a head and can be obtained from the Rugby Club during soccer camp week and Stuart Garner (374 2372), Rob Speller (727 0802), and Mark Hardy (357 5403) before then. Fans who cannot make the date, but would still like to bid, can do so by calling Rob Speller or Stuart Garner. The live auction begins at around 9.30pm.

Final registration for the camp itself takes place this coming Sunday afternoon, June 24, at the club on East Settlers Way. Children who are signed up will walk away with armfuls of goodies, including two full soccer uniforms, t-shirt, cap, sweatbands, and personal drinking cup. Check-in is open from 2.30pm to 4.30pm.

The organisers would like to thank The Bahamas Weekly for kindly making space available to publicise the camp and dinner – all proceeds for both go to the development of youth sport on Grand Bahama.
