Based in Rosario, the city where Messi was born and raised, Newell’s played for their youth squad until he was thirteen and moved to the Spanish club Barcelona.

Gerardo ‘Tata’ Martino, the inter coach, is also from the city. He was a player for the team for three stints before taking over as coach in 2012.

“I am delighted to welcome my beloved Newell’s to our home here in Miami. It will be a special match due to everything Newell’s Old Boys means to me,” Martino said.

“It will also be a good opportunity to prepare for what will surely be an exciting season,” he added.

The match is the most recent of a packed preseason program for Miami, which begins on January 19 in San Salvador against the national team of El Salvador. After that, the team will go to Saudi Arabia for two matches, where they will face Al Nassr, the team of Cristiano Ronaldo, before playing in Tokyo and Hong Kong.
