David Beckham is Now a Hotelier!
(CNN) – When David Beckham was spotted in the Macau crowd at last weekend’s Manny Pacquio vs. Brandon Rio fight — his handsome mug given a nice share of screen time — most of us assumed he was there just as a boxing fan.
Global resort developer Las Vegas Sands (LVS) and Beckham Ventures just announced a partnership that will have the retired footballer team up with the brand’s integrated resort properties in Macao and Singapore.
David Beckham, hotelier? Has a nice ring to it. And it’s likely the former England captain knows a thing or two about sheet thread counts given the amount of time he’s logged on the road.
But sadly, as much as many of us would love to stay in a Beckham-designed suite, it seems his expertise will be put to use in other areas.
Details on specific projects weren’t released but according to LVS the partnership will be based around the development of “dining, retail and leisure concepts” at Sands China properties in Macao and Marina Bay Sands in Singapore.
