Florida Sports Fandom and the Arrival of Lionel Messi: A Game-Changing Deal in Streaming

Although I relocated my family from Florida around three years back, I must confess my continued support for my home state teams, including the Florida Panthers leading the Atlantic Division, the Miami Heat, the Miami Marlins, and the Miami Dolphins.

Last year proved particularly memorable as both the Panthers and the Heat reached the finals in their respective sports, the Marlins secured a playoff berth, and the Dolphins displayed glimpses of being a Super Bowl contender during parts of the season.

Among the notable athletes on these Florida teams are Matthew Tkachuk, Tyreek Hill, Sandy Alcantara, and Jimmy Butler, to name a few. However, last year saw the arrival of a new star athlete to South Beach, surpassing even the likes of Shaq, LeBron, and Dan Marino in fame. Lionel Messi, the international soccer superstar, joined the Inter Miami football club, swiftly becoming the face of both Inter Miami and Major League Soccer.

The acquisition of Messi’s contract was a monumental deal, garnering applause even from Apple executives, despite their allegiance lying with the L.A. Galaxy FC. This is because Apple TV+ holds the streaming rights to MLS for the next nine years.

Notably, the Apple TV+ MLS webpage prominently features Messi donning the iconic pink Inter Miami uniform. As previously discussed about Apple, the company clearly understands its key stakeholders. With the season commencing this Wednesday, Apple highlights on its site, “Watch Messi, every club, and every match – including playoffs.”
