Lionel Messi’s unveiling at Inter Miami has become the most-watched football presentation in the world. With this, Messi has broken Cristiano Ronaldo’s record of unveiling at Al Nassr. Despite being at the gay end of their illustrious careers, both Messi and Ronaldo continue to compete for fans’ attention across the globe.
The most watched football presentation worldwide is now Lionel Messi’s unveiling at Inter Miami, which has surpassed Cristiano Ronaldo‘s at Al Nassr.
In spite of being in the latter stages of their illustrious careers, both these football legends continue to compete for the attention and support of fans across the world.
The Portuguese superstar abruptly changed teams last summer, signing the most-paid football deal ever with Al Nassr.
The record-breaking contract offer made to Ronaldo was just the beginning. The globe stopped to watch Ronaldo’s reveal and presentation at MrSool Park in Riyadh, where he once again established a new record. The Al Nassr presentation featuring the Portuguese forward attracted more than 3 billion viewers worldwide.
The presentation about world football attracted the most viewers ever. The 2022 World Cup final received 1.12 billion viewers, which was the most ever, but Ronaldo’s Al Nassr presentation attracted more viewers.
Lionel Messi’s announcement at the MLS club set a new standard, beating Ronaldo’s Al Nassr presentation by over 500 million viewers and garnering 3.5 billion views, albeit with fewer social media followers than the Portuguese player.
It is not shocking that more people are watching Lionel Messi’s presentation now. Since he announced that Inter Miami would be his new team for the next phase of his career, the attention of Messi fans in MLS has skyrocketed.
Messi’s new club became the most followed sports team in the US (on Instagram), with a six-fold rise in followers from 1 million to 6 million.
However, Inter Miami’s development bursts and fanbase are not the only factors in the astounding viewing of Lionel Messi’s performance.
Apple MLS Season Pass has apparently seen a phenomenal increase in new subscribers, and ticket prices for MLS games have increased significantly, with the cheapest now costing $329 after an astounding 1034% increase.
