Inter Miami: 2021 MLS regular-season schedule

With the season almost upon us, we look ahead to the games that will define how the second capaign for the Miami franchise will turn out.

Who Inter Miami play in their 2021 MLS regular-season opener?

A 10th place finish - in a conference of just 14 clubs - was not good enough for Inter Miami, even in their debut season in the MLS and with the introduction of some new players, and a new coach, hopes are high that David Beckham’s club will see a big improvement.

That challenge begins on Sunday as they face the very much more established, and successful, LA Galaxy - a team close to Beckham’s heart, of course - and Phil Neville will be unlikely to be given too much time to get his ideas working on the pitch. His first opportunity kicks off at 3 pm ET (12 noon PT) at the DRV PNK Stadium in Fort Lauderdale againt another new boss, Greg Vanney.

But their journey through this campaign is a long one, where every point will matter.
