is going to leave L.A. Galaxy. The 37-year-old British footballer, who served as a team captain of the club in 2007 after leaving Real Madrid, is scheduled to play for the major league soccer club for the last time on the MSL Cup on December 1. He and his team will face off the Houston Dynamo.

"I've had an incredibly special time playing for the LA Galaxy, however, I wanted to experience one last challenge before the end of my playing career," the father of four says in a statement. "I don't see this as the end of my relationship with the league as my ambition is to be part of the ownership structure in the future."

MLS exec Don Garber responds, "There is no doubt that MLS is far more popular and important here and abroad than it was when [Beckham] arrived." He continues, "David has achieved great things on and off the field during his time with the Galaxy, and he will always be an important part of our history. We look forward to his continued involvement with the LA Galaxy and the league."
