More than 61,000 fans bought tickets to watch the game Lionel Messi in Chicago this Wednesday. It is possible that the superstar of Inter Miami didn’t play due to injury, so the Chicago Fire offers a sort of compensatory gift to viewers.
The Fire posted on its website Tuesday: “To show our appreciation, the Chicago Fire will offer a $250 account credit for new season ticket holders heading into the 2024 season, or a $50 account credit for anyone who doesn’t want to be a season ticket holder and wants to come for just one game and is looking forward to our game against Inter Miami, any players can come out on the field.
The club added: “We know many will be attending a Chicago Fire game at Soldier Field for the first time, and we’re excited to welcome them to the Fire Family and give them a chance to become season-long ticket holders by creating a wonderful environment and dedicated to them.
Messi was not among the players photographed on Tuesday when Inter Miami tweeted a series of snaps of the team getting on the plane to Chicago. Leo has appeared in just one of Inter Miami’s six games in all competitions since September 3, and none in the last three. He missed the United States OUS pen Cup final on September 27 in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, when Miami fell 2-1 to the Houston Dynamo.
Inter Miami is 8-0-4 with Messi on the field and has 11 goals in 12 games for the team. The previous largest home crowd in Fire history was the 37,122 fans who came to watch the club beat the Los Angeles Galaxy on August 8, 1998, in Chicago’s inaugural season. Chicago (9-12-10, 37 points) and Miami (9-15-6, 33 points) are fighting to enter the playoffs in the Eastern Conference.
