A clear testament to his drawing power, the highly anticipated opening match between Inter Miami and the Galaxy has created a ticket frenzy, with all available seats snapped up in a mere six minutes.
Scheduled for February 25th, the match has already set records as it reached a sold-out status in record time. Remarkably, even the VIP tickets, priced at over $900, were the first to be grabbed by eager fans, as reported by Viagogo (h/t TyC Sports). While some tickets, starting at $533, are still available through resale platforms, they come with a premium due to the overwhelming demand.
The quick sellout underscores Messi's immense popularity and the anticipation surrounding his performances in the upcoming MLS season. Fans are eager to witness the football legend in action, and the rush for tickets reflects the unparalleled excitement generated by his presence on the field.
As Messi continues to make waves in the MLS, the sold-out season opener stands as a testament to his enduring influence on the global football stage.
