He may be the most famous face in Major League Soccer, but David Beckham will soon be moving on.  Officials with the LA Galaxy say Beckham will be leaving the team after its MLS Cup game on December 1st.  

The famous British midfielder joined the team back in 2007, and helped lead the Galaxy to a league title last year.  His move to the US helped raise the profile of Major League Soccer in the US.  

The announcement of his departure comes just ten months after Beckham signed a new 2 year contract with the Galaxy.  

In a statement, Beckham said that he wanted to experience "one last challenge" before the end of his playing career.
