Inter Miami is rushing to finish a $1 billion stadium project because to Messi’s dominance.

The MLS team is constructing a $350 million soccer-specific stadium at Miami Freedom Park, slated to open in 2025. The stadium, which will hold 25,000 people, will be the first of its kind in the United States. The stadium's completion is expected to boost the club's income by $200 million for 2025. Messi's contract with Inter Miami runs until his 38th birthday. Argentina is also constructing a training facility near Miami, potentially increasing Messi Mania in South Florida.

Following Lionel Messi’s stunning debut for Inter Miami, the MLS team is now pressing for the construction of its long-awaited $1 billion stadium.

The $350 million soccer-specific stadium at Miami Freedom Park, a 131-acre construction, is now slated to open in 2025. Messi has a contract with Inter Miami that runs through the year he turns 38.

Four of Miami’s home games during its nine-game winning streak since Messi’s arrival have taken place at the 21,000-seat DRV PNK Stadium. The new Miami Freedom Park arena will hold 25,000 people, which is a little more.

The start of the 2025 MLS season, which is anticipated to begin in late February, will depend on whether or not the new stadium is completed in time. The venue’s construction has started, and later this year there will be a formal groundbreaking ceremony.

Any further delays might result in the likelihood of Messi not playing at the stadium opening. With Messi playing a third season and a new stadium, the club now forecasts $200 million in income for next year, roughly quadrupling its forecast for this year. In 2025, that figure will likely increase even more.

Messi may decide to continue playing for Inter Miami after 2025, allowing the team to capitalize on the superstar even more. Argentina is constructing a training facility near Miami, and the 2026 FIFA World Cup will feature games there. As a result, South Florida may experience an increase in Messi Mania in the years to come.
