Miami International spends $1 billion on new stadium
Miami International FC announced Monday that it will begin construction on its new stadium, Miami Liberty Park, and unveiled renderings of the $1 billion complex.

Miami International has been playing at DRV PNK Stadium in Fort Lauderdale, Florida since their USL debut in 2020, but they plan to move into the new stadium in 2025. It's worth noting that without a new contract extension, 2025 will be Messi's last year with Miami International.

The multi-billion dollar project is not just limited to the MLS stadium; the complex also includes a 58-acre park (which will be the largest new park in Miami), community soccer and youth stadiums, and commercial and entertainment facilities that include luxury hotels, retail centers, and office space. Local businesses on the complex, particularly the hotels and stores in the retail center, are expected to benefit from the influx of game-day spectators to the area to catch a glimpse of Messi.

Devin McCorkle, who was recently named chairman of Miami Freedom Park, said World Cup winner Messi's arrival in Miami last month has already had a huge positive impact on the project. Messi mania has swept Miami, with the club adding about 3,000 seats to DRV PNK Stadium to accommodate fans eager to catch a glimpse of the seven-time Ballon d'Or winner, which will have 25,000 seats in the new stadium.

Miami Freedom Park will lease 73 acres of land from the city, paying the city $2.67 billion in rent over the life of the lease and will contribute a further $6.3 billion in tax revenue.
