David Beckham has become the final member of the famed "Class of ’92" to take a stake in National League football club Salford City.

Beckham joins five other Manchester United legends – Gary Neville, Phil Neville, Ryan Giggs, Nicky Butt and Paul Scholes – in holding a 10 per cent share in the club.

Following the deal, the six former Man Utd stars now hold a combined 60 per cent stake in the club. Singaporean billionaire Peter Lim remains the single largest shareholder with 40 per cent.

“It’s a proud moment for me to join Peter Lim and the Class of ’92 lads as an owner of Salford City FC,” said Beckham.

“It’s a really special club and a special group of people. My early years in Manchester were all spent in Salford. I grew up there in many ways so to be able to finally join the lads and the club today is a great feeling.”

Lim has pledged to continue offering financial resources for the club and to "help move the club forward".

The "Class of '92" first took ownership of Salford City FC in 2013.

Since 2014, the club has won three promotions in four seasons and has redeveloped its Moor Lane stadium into a 5,000-plus capacity venue.

The club is currently third in the National League and is looking to gain promotion to the Football League for the first time in its history.

The club is one of many sports-related investments and ventures involving the Class of '92.

These include the Hotel Football in Manchester and university focused on wellbeing

David Beckham, meanwhile, already owns a sizeable stake in the future Major League Soccer franchise Inter Miami CF.
