Messi’s Lucrative Move to Inter Miami: Sponsorships and Ownership Deals
Football enthusiasts were shocked when Lionel Messi signed with Inter Miami during the current summer transfer window. He was anticipated to sign with Saudi Pro League team Al Hilal, who offered a sizable sum of money, after leaving PSG as a free agent. Additionally, Barelona was thought to be his preferred destination, but a transfer there was prevented by the club’s financial problems.
He will make a ton of money from sponsors when the 2022 FIFA World Cup champions migrate to MLS. According to a contract between Apple and MLS, the company will pay at least $250 million each season in return for the right to broadcast all league games on a worldwide scale for ten years. According to other reports, MLS and Apple allegedly offered Lionel Messi a cut of the revenue from new customers who sign up for the MLS Season Pass streaming program on Apple TV. Even a four-episode documentary series about Messi that follows his FIFA World Cup journey has been revealed by Apple TV.
Adidas has long been Lionel Messi’s sponsor and is a significant MLS sponsor. They allegedly gave him a cut of the revenue from item sales that resulted from his entry into the Major League Soccer. And to top it off, when he retires, he will also inherit more than a third of Inter Miami.
