The man who brought Messi to Miami

Jorge Mas, owner of Inter Miami, is aboard the Icon of the Seas, the largest cruise ship in the world, to unveil his club’s jersey sponsorship with Royal Caribbean and witness the vessel’s naming ceremony. The event features performances by Scottish cover band, aquatic acrobats, and Argentine soccer star Lionel Messi. Securing Messi came at a significant cost, but it has propelled Inter Miami’s revenue and global recognition. Despite Messi’s eventual departure, Mas is focused on sustaining the club’s success. His journey from a baseball enthusiast to a billionaire sports owner is remarkable. Mas’s vision for Inter Miami attracted Messi, transforming Miami into a soccer city. However, challenges like Messi’s injury setbacks highlight the need for a future beyond him. Mas plans to attract more top players to Inter Miami, leveraging Miami’s appeal and strategic partnerships. He envisions MLS becoming a global powerhouse by 2027, with plans to capitalize on the 2026 World Cup and lucrative media deals. Mas is committed to the league’s growth and success, aiming to benefit the overall soccer ecosystem.
