Lionel Messi’s move to Major League Soccer team Inter Miami CF will be chronicled in a six-part documentary streaming exclusively on Apple TV+.
Messi’s twenty year has seen him play for both Barcelona and Paris Saint-Germain and win the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022 with the Argentina national football team. His decision last month to join Inter Miami on a two-and-a-half year contract is set to change the face of soccer in North America.
The as yet untitled series, which is being produced for Apple by Smuggler Entertainment and produced in association with Major League Soccer, takes viewers behind-the-scenes as Messi attempts to lead his new team to a Leagues Cup title and beyond.
From selling out record crowds across America at breakneck speed, to his incredible last-minute game-winning goal in his very first match, to moments with Messi and his Inter Miami CF teammates, the series chronicles Messi’s immersion in America, the remarkable journey and transformation of Inter Miami CF, and most significantly, the impact he is currently having on soccer in North America as “Messi Mania” crisscrosses the continent.
“I couldn’t be happier coming to Miami and joining such an amazing group of people and organization,” said Messi.
“I’m joining with the desire to compete, win and help the club continue to grow. I also think we’re going to really enjoy ourselves, have a good time and that very special things are going to happen.”
In addition to the documentary, fans in more than 100 countries and regions can watch Messi’s progress with Inter Miami CF on MLS Season Pass, the subscription service from Apple and Major League Soccer available through the Apple TV app.
