London - Frank Lampard is heading to the United States with another title — this time from the queen.

The former Chelsea and England midfielder, who will join New York City in the MLS from July 1, was one of many past and present British sports stars and officials to be honored Friday in Queen Elizabeth II's birthday list.

Lampard was made an Officer of the Order of the British Empire (OBE) for his services to football, after playing 106 times for England and scoring a club-record 211 goals for Chelsea in 13 years.

"I am delighted to receive this huge honor," said the 36-year-old Lampard, who won the Premier League three times and the FA Cup four times with Chelsea.

"I feel very fortunate to have had such a long and fulfilling career in football.

"This is an extremely proud moment for myself and my family."
