Major League Soccer side Inter Miami, co-owned by English footballing legend David Beckham and managed by former Premier League and England national team player Phil Neville, wants to honor the late Prince Philip by wearing black armbands on the pitch.
Ahead of Sunday's regular-season opener versus LA Galaxy, Neville spoke with reporters about how his club may recognize The Duke of Edinburgh who passed away April 9 at the age of 99.
"I think the plan is to wear black armbands," Neville explained, according to Jeff Carlisle of ESPN.
"I spoke to David [Beckham] about this a couple of days ago. I'm not sure whether it's been passed by the MLS, whether you need permission or not.
"I'll have to probably find that out, but I think that the idea is to wear black armbands in terms of paying our respects to Prince Philip, yes."
Carlisle added that Miami expects to hear back from MLS about the request at some point on Friday. It's unclear why the North American top-flight would not permit players to wear black armbands to honor Prince Philip during matches. His funeral is scheduled to take place on Saturday.
Beckham, meanwhile, recently mentioned Cristiano Ronaldo, Lionel Messi and Neymar as potential future targets for the young MLS club on the verge of beginning its second season.
