Witness Lionel Messi’s MLS Debut with Inter Miami: A Journey for Celebrities and Fans from Around the World

Two young boys from the Bahamas, Kingston Peel, 11, and Wynn Peel, 9, were awakened early one Friday morning with a surprise from their mother. They were going to fly to South Florida to witness Lionel Messi, the soccer superstar, make his Major League Soccer debut with Inter Miami.

Excited, they arrived at DRV PNK Stadium hours before the match against Mexican club Cruz Azul in the Leagues Cup. Dressed in black-and-pink Inter Miami jerseys with Messi’s No. 10 on the back, they joined throngs of fans who traveled from as far as Ecuador and Messi’s native Argentina.

Even celebrities such as Kim Kardashian, Serena Williams, and LeBron James showed up to witness Messi’s MLS debut. The anticipation was palpable as fans waited to capture their Messi memorabilia in a photo booth and stood in line for team gear.

In a stunning turn of events, Messi scored a game-winning free kick in the 94th minute, leading Inter Miami to a 2-1 victory. The excitement was out of this world, and everyone present, young and old, will cherish the memory of witnessing Messi’s first game with his new team.

Messi’s signing with Inter Miami has made a tremendous impact on soccer in the United States. With the likes of David Beckham, who himself made a splash in MLS in 2007, acknowledging that Messi’s arrival has raised the bar for the sport.

Miami native Carlos Fierro, a lifelong Messi fan, compared Messi’s arrival to LeBron James signing with the Miami Heat in 2010, expecting the atmosphere to be loud, fun, and reminiscent of typical Miami style.
