Inter Miami deny claims of Messi-Ronaldo friendly in Saudi Arabia



Inter Miami have denied the recent announcement of their participation in the Riyadh Season Cup to face Cristiano Ronaldo’s Al-Nassr.

News broke on Tuesday that Al-Nassr will meet Inter Miami in a friendly to set up another clash between Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo.

The Saudi General Entertainment Authority had released a statement confirming that the game will take place in February as part of the Riyadh Season Cup in 2024.

Just hours later, Inter Miami responded to the news and denied that they will be taking part in Saudi Arabia’s plans for next year.

“Earlier today, an announcement was issued stating that Inter Miami CF is scheduled to play in the Riyadh Season Cup. This is inaccurate,” the Inter Miami statement said.


“The release included statements attributed to team owner Jorge Mas. Mas has made no comments, publicly or privately, in relation to the pre-season tour.”
