When will Messi play his first game for Inter Miami

With Lionel confirming “100%” joining on Wednesday, everyone wonders when the hero expects to play his first match. 

Taking his GOAT status to the sun-kissed shores of Florida, the global icon joins 's burgeoning MLS franchise, marking a monumental chapter in their short history. 

But when will Lionel Messi play his inaugural match for the Fort Lauderdale-based club?

Messi's Inter Miami debut appears imminent 

Miami can look forward to a football spectacle unlike any they've seen before as the pitch of the DRV PNK Stadium prepares to bear the footprints of a true genius. 

But good luck getting yourself a ticket. Tickets for every MLS match against Inter Miami across the league have sold out. Even Messi's best friend and former Argentina teammate Sergio Aguero can't seem to get his hands on one. 

“I asked Messi for a ticket of Inter Miami game and he told me it was sold out. There are no tickets. I don't know what's going on..”, said Aguero.

Inter Miami's DRV PNK Stadium holds a mere 18,000 fans, paltry compared to 100,000-capacity European like Camp Nou.  

For LAFC's game against Messi on September 3, tickets have increased from $81 to $422 and go as high as $10,000 for field suites. 

The Messi effect is real. The Argentine magician expects to suit up in the pink kit possibly on June 25 against Philadelphia or on July 1 at home against Austin. 

We bet on the latter, as Beckham and company like to make grand entrances. 

As we wait for the player to post an official announcement on his own Instagram account, the Inter Miami Instagram handle has surpassed the Miami Heat. 

The club gained over 4.5 million followers in just 24 hours after the announcement. The account earns an average of 1,400 new Instagram followers every minute, approaching 7 million followers.
