USA: Inter Miami begins construction of new stadium Miami Freedom Park - that is the name of the future stadium of Leo Messi's club. Plans for its construction go back years, and the day of August 28 will be remembered by loyal fans of the Florida team for a long time to come. When will the new arena be inaugurated?


Big day for Inter Miami

Inter Miami CF announced that construction of Miami Freedom Park began this month. The stadium, 58-hectare public park and entertainment district at Miami Freedom Park is expected to open in 2025, with the official groundbreaking ceremony taking place later this year. Miami Freedom Park is a 131-acre development with a new 25,000-seat stadium as its centrepiece.

This is a milestone and a very important step forward for the project. The construction of the arena will undoubtedly be part of an environment that will make Miami Freedom Park a year-round destination suitable for all Miami residents and visitors. Miami Freedom Park is a privately funded project that will also include soccer and youth fields for the local community, a full range of entertainment and commercial offerings, including office space, a hotel, shops, restaurants and additional attractions.

The Messi effect in Miami

The construction of the new stadium coincides with Inter Miami's acquisition of some of the best former FC Barcelona players in history, Lionel Messi, Sergio Busquets and Jordi Alba. The presence of these stars is already having a great impact on the club and the city. The new stadium is expected to be a magnet for more big names, further raising Inter Miami CF's status on the world stage.

Devon McCorkle, president of Miami Freedom Park, highlighted the incredible level of interest and enquiries the project has received, attributing it to Lionel Messi's positive impact on Inter Miami CF and the city of Miami. The club is in talks with potential stadium sponsors, hotel brands, operators of major attractions and restaurant groups, with the aim of creating a new entertainment district that will be the hub of family activities and attractions in Miami.

More than just a stadium, the project is a symbol of the rapid growth and transformation that Inter Miami CF and US football have undergone in just a few years. As construction progresses, Miami Freedom Park is set to set new standards and create previously unknown expectations of what a sports complex can offer.
