The MLS is still reeling from the Messi storm, as his incredible performance has garnered 5 goals and 1 assist in his first 3 games. The Herons' three consecutive wins have transformed the atmosphere of the club.
Following a satisfying victory against Orlando City in the Florida Derby, the Herons are set to face Dallas in their next match on August 6th. This will be Lionel Messi's first away match.
The wait to watch Messi has come to an end for Texas fans....
Messi's impact has also reached Dallas fans, as all tickets for the Inter Miami vs. Dallas FC match were sold out in just 10 minutes. Despite the Toyota Stadium's 21,000 seats, the demand couldn't match the frenzy surrounding Messi.
The Athletic, a US-based newspaper, reported that resellable tickets for the Leagues Cup match were being sold for up to $9,000 after selling out in 10 minutes. The unprecedented demand for tickets has left Dallas FC amazed, with the co-owner, Dan Hunt, calling it the Greatest Revolution in MLS history.
Blame Messi for the situation, as even at his debut match, ticket prices increased up to 1000 times. His presence has also led to a surge in the sale of sports goods for the Herons, surpassing the total volume of sales from January to June.
The ticket stock being out for the Inter Miami vs. Dallas FC match is just a new addition to the fans' craziness about Messi...
Fanatics, the digital sports platform, and e-commerce partner of MLS, declared that the jersey sales following Messi's signing were unprecedented in sports history. No other player has had such an influence on jersey sales after a transfer. Messi's addition to the match between Inter Miami and Dallas FC has only added to his tremendous impact.
Meanwhile, FC Dallas is feeling confident about their upcoming match against Inter Miami at the Toyota Stadium. They've secured three wins in the last four encounters with the Herons. The last time they faced each other was on April 9th at DRV PNK Stadium, where Dallas claimed a 1-0 victory on the opponents' home ground. However, things have evolved since then. Messi's presence has transformed Miami, and Dallas is well aware of it. It's likely to be a fantastic match that all soccer fans can enjoy.
