Former England captain David Beckham will officially be unveiled as a Los Angeles Galaxy player at the Home Depot Center on Friday 13 July.
Beckham is joining a team that has struggled so far this season
The midfielder's debut game has yet to be decided, although it could be in a friendly against Chelsea on 21 July.
Beckham, 32, has agreed to join the Major League Soccer team on a five-year contract worth up to £125m.
The club have not made a good start to the season and are second from bottom in the six-team Western Conference.
Beckham is still undergoing rehabilitation on his injured ankle, but he helped Real Madrid win La Liga, playing in the 3-1 win over Mallorca on the final day of the season.
Despite steering Madrid to the Spanish title, coach Fabio Capello was sacked by the club on Thursday.
Some pundits claiming the Italian's decision to temporarily freeze Beckham out of Madrid first team was one of the main reasons for his dismissal.
