Football Icons to Clash in Saudi Arabia as Part of Inter Miami’s International Tour

In a highly anticipated face-off, Lionel Messi’s Inter Miami is set to play two thrilling matches in Saudi Arabia early next year, with one of the clashes featuring a familiar foe, Cristiano Ronaldo, and his club Al-Nassr. The Riyadh Season Cup, a prestigious three-team round-robin tournament, is a pivotal component of Miami’s inaugural international tour, which will also see stops in El Salvador and Hong Kong.

On January 29, Miami is scheduled to take on Al-Hilal at the Kingdom Arena in Riyadh before going head-to-head with Al-Nassr at the same venue on February 1. The matchup against Ronaldo’s team promises to be a highlight, given the longstanding rivalry between the two football legends who have faced each other more than 30 times in their illustrious careers.

Messi and Ronaldo, boasting a staggering 13 Ballon d’Or awards between them, with the Argentinian leading the race eight to five, will undoubtedly draw global attention to the Riyadh Season Cup. The clash in Saudi Arabia adds another chapter to their storied rivalry, captivating football enthusiasts worldwide.

Inter Miami’s Chief Business Officer, Xavier Asensi, expressed enthusiasm about the opportunity to connect with passionate fans in Saudi Arabia. “This is another major opportunity to create lasting relationships with passionate fans,” said Asensi. “We are excited to connect with new supporters in Saudi Arabia, and also hope people all over the world will be tuning in to see a pair of dream matches like these.”

It’s worth noting that Messi, after receiving an offer to play in the Saudi league upon leaving Paris St-Germain, opted to sign with Inter Miami. His presence has already made a significant impact, leading the team to victory in the Leagues Cup and contributing to a surge in ticket prices as fans eagerly anticipate witnessing the football maestro in action. The clash against Ronaldo’s Al-Nassr adds an extra layer of excitement to Inter Miami’s international tour, creating a spectacle that transcends borders and showcases the enduring allure of these football titans.
