August 15 — Lionel Messi has delivered Inter Miami wins, goals (8 in five games), and Fracht Group, the club’s first global partner.
Messi is everywhere and scoring in every game.
Inter Miami, who started the Leagues Cup at the bottom of the MLS and without a win in nine games, have gone on a five-game unbeaten run to the semi-finals of the new month-long competition that has seen MLS and Liga MX break from their regular seasons to compete in an inter-league championship in the US.
Inter Miami defeated Charlotte 4-0 over the weekend. Messi and his team face the Philadelphia Union on Wednesday to qualify for the finals. Nashville or Monterrey await the champions.
Messi has put his team in title contention in five matches.
It’s contagious, and when Fracht Group became Inter Miami CF’s Official and Exclusive Right Jersey Sleeve Partner and Official Logistics Services Partner in July, they couldn’t have imagined such a great start.
US fans love international cub football, as most Leagues Cup games are sold out.
Mexican teams have won 14 of the last 15 Concacaf Champions Leagues, but the Leagues Cup has proven MLS clubs are increasingly willing to compete with Liga MX clubs.
Monterrey, LigaMX’s solitary semi-finalist, faces Nashville, MLS’s newest team.
The victors may face Inter Miami in the inaugural competition’s final.
Being in the right place at the right time is a genius for the Fracht Group, which wants to speak globally about environmental and social responsibility.
