Inter Miami: Messi is injured, but tickets are still expensive


Lionel Messi’s health remains unclear as the Major League Soccer (MLS) season draws to a close. Fans still have to spend a small fortune to see the team play, even if the star isn’t there.

Messi is reportedly suffering from a hamstring injury, but versions differ. After his return from selection with Argentina on September 8, he was left out twice due to muscle fatigue.

Against Toronto FC on September 20, he spent only 36 minutes on the field before going out with an injury, which had already raised the ire of fans in Miami. He has missed the last three games.

Remember that at 36 years old, the legendary striker is no longer young. Except that the vagueness regarding his state of health causes frustration among fans, who do not hesitate to criticize Inter Miami CF on social networks.

“What is Messi suffering from? We still don’t know. He’s training, not doing the same things as the group, but he’s feeling better and better. I can’t say today that he won’t play against Chicago (Wednesday). We evaluate day by day,” head coach Gerardo “Tata” Martino said at a press conference on Saturday, according to the Foot Mercato website.

Earlier last week, the Herons pilot told the USA Today newspaper that he was convinced that Messi would play again by the end of the campaign.

A fortune

Meanwhile, ticket prices remain unchanged. Before the US Cup final between Miami and the Houston Dynamo on Wednesday, tickets were selling for between $145 and $4,000 on resale sites, and Messi did not play. Fans must obviously reserve their seats, but without the guarantee of seeing their favorite appear on the pitch.

Messi’s arrival led to the club’s first ever trophy in August, the League Cup. The former FC Barcelona and Paris Saint-Germain player scored 10 goals in seven games, and the fans were happy.

Where the Inter Miami CF faithful are disillusioned is when looking at the cost of season tickets for 2024. According to the daily “Miami Herald”, the cheapest tickets for the whole year will go from $485 to $884. For seats located in the center and bottom, you will have to pay $7,650 rather than the $3,600 for 2023.

Thus, season ticket holders before Messi’s arrival are not very satisfied, attacking Inter Miami for their lack of loyalty.
