  • The former England camptian has been announced as the new consultant and partner for global property developer Las Vegas Sands

    David Beckham has just signed a major deal with global property developers Las Vegas Sands, which will see him helping to grow glamorous luxury resorts around the world.

    The 38-year-old former England captain will act as the company’s consultant and partner in the development of Las Vegas Sands properties in both Singapore and Macao, the gaming capital of the world.

    The partnership will see Beckham, described as a ‘tastemaker’, lending his expertise in developing dining, retail and leisure concepts for the leading luxury property company.

    And with the world-famous Marina Bay Sands resort boasting a whole host of Michelin-starred chefs- Daniel Boulud, Wolfgang Puck, Guy Savoy and Mario Batali – it looks like Becks’ expensive taste will come in handy…

    ‘The Sands team has created amazing resorts in Singapore and Macau’, Victoria Beckhams handsome husband said of the deal. ‘The scale, vision and calibre in all that they do is impressive.’

    ‘I am very excited to be working with them to develop a range of new business ideas in a part of the world that I love spending time in and is full of optimism and growth.’

    Becks’s latest signing marks an exciting new career path for the multi-talented ex-footballer, who has already proven his impressive eye for design in the world of fashion, consumer goods and electronics, as well as through his bestselling H&M underwear line.

    ‘We have billions of dollars invested in our own global, iconic brands and we clearly understand the importance of growing and sustaining those brands over time’, said Michael Leven, president and chief operating officer of Las Vegas Sands Corp.

    “The odds are extremely high that a partnership with David Beckham will help us further those efforts and provide David with the same benefit.’

    ‘We are very excited about the partnership and we fully expect it to grow in the years to come, especially as we aggressively explore opportunities to further expand our presence in Asia.’

    The dad-of-four celebrated his exciting news by attending the Manny Pacquiao v Brandon Rios boxing match in Macau, where he was spotted enjoying the ring action alongside US socialite Paris Hilton.

    Looks like the Beckham brood better brace themselves for some epic Asian adventures…
