Becks bucks rise by almost a third

Nice work if you can get it, but then you can’t because you’re not David Beckham. Given these figures wonder if he ever got close to that $250 million in total income over the five years of his contract with MLS:

LONDON (AP) — David Beckham’s income from personal sponsorship deals rose by 30 percent last year, signaling the enduring strength of the Galaxy player’s brand appeal.

According to figures released by Britain’s Companies House, revenue for the company which handles Beckham’s endorsements was 14.9 million pounds (then $23.9 million) in 2010.

In 2009, Footwork Productions received 11.4 million pounds ($18.3 million) from companies
including sportswear manufacturer Adidas.

The accounts also showed that Beckham received 11.6 million pounds ($18.6) from the company compared with 9 million pounds (then $14.6 million) the previous year.

The 36-year-old Beckham’s $6.5 million a year MLS contract expires in November.
