Lionel Messi’s Inter Miami will begin their pre-season 2024 campaign against the El Salvador national football team in a friendly at the Estadio Cuscatlan in San Salvador, El Salvador. 

The El Salvador vs Inter Miami pre-season 2024 match will start at 6:30 AM IST on Saturday, January 20. Live streaming of the match will be available in India.

Under head coach Gerardo Martino, Inter Miami are scheduled to play seven pre-season 2024 games in order to prepare themselves for MLS 2024 season.

After a short visit to El Salvador, Inter Miami will travel to Hong Kong, Japan and Saudi Arabia before concluding their pre-season 2024 tour in Dallas, Texas.

Following Inter Miami’s pre-season 2024 opener vs El Salvador, they will square off against FC Dallas at the Cotton Bowl Stadium in Dallas on January 22 (January 23 as per IST).

The MLS outfit will later visit Saudi Arabia to participate in the Riyadh Season Cup 2024.

Inter Miami are scheduled to play Saudi Pro League giants Al-Hilal at the Kingdom Arena on January 29.

Messi’s Miami will also lock horns with Ronaldo’s Al-Nassr in the much-awaited ‘Last Dance’ clash at the same venue on February 1.

The MLS side will later travel to Hong Kong to play against a specially invited Hong Kong Team at the Hong Kong Stadium on February 4.

Inter Miami will also visit Japan to play J1 League side Vissel Kobe at the Japan National Stadium in Tokyo on February 7.

Lastly, they will conclude the pre-season 2024 tour with a friendly against Messi’s boyhood club Newell's Old Boys at the DRV PNK Stadium in Fort Lauderdale, Florida on February 15 (February 16 as per IST).

Meanwhile, Inter Miami will aim to bounce back after a disappointing MLS campaign last season.

Having registered just nine wins in 34 matches, Miami finished second from bottom in the Eastern Conference standings.

Having roped in former Barcelona forward Luis Suarez ahead of the new season, Miami will start as one of the favourites to win the MLS with the likes of Sergio Busquets, Jordi Alba and Messi in their ranks.
