Inter Miami CF at DRV PNK Stadium
The highly anticipated arrival of Major League Soccer's expansion team in Miami finally became a reality in 2020. Inter Miami CF (short for Club Internacional de Fútbol Miami) plays its home games at DRV PNK Stadium, an 18,000 capacity soccer-specific stadium located in Fort Lauderdale, FL. Inter Miami's very existence is founded on embracing the diversity of Miami's identity and the passion and greatness that co-owner David Beckham brought to the soccer field with English national team Manchester United and the MLS's own LA Galaxy. Inter Miami is led by 2019 No. 1 overall MLS Superdraft pick Robbie Robinson and Head Coach Phil Neville on the pitch, and The Siege, Southern Legion and Vice City 1896 supporter groups in the stands. And while Inter Miami's eventual home stadium, the 25,000 capacity Miami Freedom Park, moves through the approval process, DRV PNK Stadium will still remain the team's training complex and the home of its USL affiliate and Academy teams.
Inter Miami CF History
When English footballer David Beckham made MLS history as the first big-name international star to sign on to the league (with the LA Galaxy in 2007), he was also given the option of purchasing an expansion team once his playing days were over. Inter Miami CF is not just the product of Beckham exercising that option, but also of a concerted effort by the Miami Beckham United Group to bring an MLS team to South Florida in style. Inter Miami splashes into the 2023 season led by the 2019 top pick -- Clemson striker Robbie Robinson. In 2019, Robinson won the MAC Hermann Trophy as the nation's top college soccer player.
The team's first-ever head coach, Diego Alonso, was a Uruguayan national team standout and a two-time Concacaf Champions League coach with Pachuca and Monterrey, both of Mexico's top Liga MX.
So wonderful to see Messi live! And that Drake Callendar is really amazing, too.
The occasion was truly splendid, characterized by a magnificent atmosphere, imparting a singular and unforgettable experience. Witnessing the venerable Messi sharing his 8th Ballon d'Or bestowed upon the proceedings an indescribable and once-in-a-lifetime aura. Acknowledging life's inherent imperfections, our team did not emerge victorious in the game. However, every other facet of the event was executed with exceptional precision and finesse.
Great ground and facilities. Fantastic celebration of Messi. Shame about the focus in 2nd half and the end result. Still, a great night, good value!
Everything was well organized and fun! We had so much fun as a family
It was very nice so See Lionel Messi live und the ceremony was cool.
I flew from NY for the experience of my life time, to see Messi play I didn’t he was playing mostly on the other side of the field The first 20 minute the game was ok after was pitiful I melt 15 before it finish I wish to get my money back
It was a great experience Great atmosphere It was funny 😆 I had a lot of fun
It was a great experience brought my family for my son’s birthday and we had a blast. Very well organized and really good game.
This was my first MLS game. Miami V NYC Played at Miami (Actually not near Miami, closer to Ft Lauderdale). The stadium was clean and well maintained, and the seats were easy to access. For a Friday night game with Messi playing I was expecting it to be full. But that was not the case. Three of the sands were at 80+ %, but the more expensive seats was less than 40%. I think they have the pricing wrong as these were great seats but empty is empty!! So you loose the atmosphere. Talking of atmosphere, as a somebody that is use to the British Premiere league games where the fan rivalry and chanting is a huge part of the game. It seems the US is set up much more partisan. Almost no NYC fans other than 20 or so. But the whole set up seems one sided. When NYC came out, they just walked on to no introduction and no cheer. When Miami came out they were introduced individually with some applause until Messi’s name was announced and the place erupted. That is how the whole event played out. Every time Messi touched the ball the place went crazy. When he wasn’t involved (which was for a considerable amount of the game). The noise was back to zero. There were some great fans I think from Argentina who were singing for a good portion of the game. Whe NYC scored you almost didn’t notice. It was silent. They scored 2. Then when Miami got 1 back they let fireworks off. Miami. Was still losing 2 - 1 but the celebrations and fireworks was too much. Especially when NYC goals were met with silence. Overall I really enjoyed the experience and would probably go again. But definitely a different experience to other Football/Soccer games I have been to see. Miami has a lot of work to do, especially for the fan base, if Messi wasn’t there maybe the place would have been 70% less. I heard Suarez is coming so that might help. Good luck Miami.
