Inter Miami CF and co-owner David Beckham may have brought world-class fútbol to South Florida, but interest in the sport has only accelerated with the arrival of soccer royalty, Lionel Messi. Touted as one of the world’s best players, Messi recently signed a contract with the team and has since spurred a new wave of excitement with soccer-obsessed fans and even those who aren’t familiar with the sport.

Magical moments with Messi have already captivated audiences at the DRV PNK Stadium in neighboring Fort Lauderdale. The World Cup winner from Argentina, who’s now dressed in a No. 10 pink-and-black jersey, made a cinematic impact during his Inter Miami debut with a thrilling game-winning kick. With an exhilarating energy that ripples through the stadium and a glamorous atmosphere that draws celebrities and sports superstars, attending a soccer game is an only-in-South Experience.

It’s only a sampling of what’s to come as Miami positions itself to be a global soccer destination. DRV PNK Stadium is conveniently located to Acqualina Resort, only a 30-minute drive away from Sunny Isles Beach. Flip through the Inter Miami CF schedule to join the Messi mania.
