David and Victoria Beckham met at a soccer game in 1997
Although the couple grew up within 15 minutes of each other in London, they didn’t meet until a soccer game in 1997. Victoria, the famous Posh Spice, came to see a Manchester United game where David Beckham was playing. Although the two met each other after the game, David’s shyness got the better of him. David had earlier confessed that he was attracted to Posh after seeing her perform wearing a catsuit in a Spice Girls video.
However, Victoria had a different start to her love story. Victoria revealed that she was not that into soccer, and during their first meeting, she didn’t know who David Beckham was. However, they got closer during their second meeting. During an interview, David said, “We talked for about an hour in the players’ lounge, and then she got the train up that day. She wrote her number down on her train ticket, which I still have.”
