The time of eager anticipation is over for Inter Miami enthusiasts. The internationally renowned football superstar, Lionel Messi, is scheduled to make his debut appearance for Inter Miami at DRV PNK Stadium, 6 p.m. ET, this Sunday, July 16. The club has organized a ‘major unveiling event’ for this occasion, promising fans an evening filled with unexpected surprises, exhilarating entertainment, and inspiring on-field speeches.

As Lionel Messi prepares to be unveiled as Inter Miami’s newest superstar this weekend, a historic chapter in the annals of MLS is about to be written. A few weeks ago, Messi made a momentous decision to continue his illustrious football journey in America, departing Europe. The attractive proposal from Inter Miami piqued his interest, and the Argentine striker promptly agreed to join David Beckham’s franchise.

Having recently participated in the 2022 FIFA World Cup, Messi has already arrived in sunny Florida. His new team is fervently preparing an extravagant welcome event for the former PSG standout, to take place this weekend at DRV PNK Stadium.

In the ‘Save the Date’ notification, Inter Miami confirmed that Season Ticket Members would have free access to the unveiling event at DRV PNK Stadium. However, other enthusiasts will have to acquire a ‘limited ticket’ for admission to the event.

Inter Miami CF, in their official announcement, stated: “We’re excited to organize a major unveiling event this Sunday, July 16, at 6 pm ET at DRV PNK Stadium. Fans can anticipate a night packed with entertainment, on-pitch speeches, and more! As a sign of appreciation for our devoted fans, Season Ticket Members will receive free tickets to this momentous occasion.”

The unveiling event will be live-streamed on Apple TV’s MLS Season Pass. Additionally, negotiations are underway to expand its broadcast to other channels.

Prominent networks such as Fox, Univision, and the Gold Cup’s organizer, Concacaf, are reportedly in touch with MLS about airing portions of ‘The Unveil.’

According to Gastón Edul, a TyC Sports journalist, the upcoming plans for Messi and Inter Miami are grand indeed. With entertainment icons like Shakira and Bad Bunny rumored to be performing, the unveiling is set to be a mega-event, with an anticipated crowd of over 20,000 spectators.
