Inter Miami are already thinking about the 2024 season after a bittersweet campaign in which they managed to complete the best transfer window in the history of Major League Soccer by signing Lionel Messi, Jordi Alba and Sergio Busquets. Unfortunately, it was not enough and the side did not make the MLS 2023 playoffs.

Now, however, there is talk that they will continue with Beckham’s dream team idea with players such as Luis Suárez, as the club seek to make history in the United States with the 8-time Ballon d’Or winning Argentine as the poster boy.

Through their social networks, Inter Miami confirmed that the first game of their 2024 pre-season will be against the El Salvador National Team at the Cuscatlán Stadium in January. They will also play River Plate as part of their schedule after it emerged that their game against Flamengo had been called off.

Inter Miami CF , who recently sold out of season tickets, announced that they will take on the El Salvador national team at the Estadio Cuscatlán in San Salvador on Friday, Jan. 19 at 8 p.m. ET for the club’s first preseason match of 2024.
