Inter Miami officially confirms China tour cancelled

A brief statement on the club’s website read: “The tour promoter, NSN, has informed Inter Miami CF of the cancellation of its China Tour due to unforeseen circumstances in China. Inter Miami’s ambition remains to expand its global reach by playing in front of incredible fans from around the world; The club will continue to explore future opportunities with NSN to achieve this goal.

Clearly, the statement, with references to NSN notifying the club and “unforeseen circumstances in China”, indicates that the decision is out of Inter Miami’s hands. However, given the chaos with ticket sales and the late change of venue, it remains a mystery why Inter Miami had to wait so long to give us the news.

As previously reported by Argentinian journalist Gastón Edul, Inter will not embark on their trip to Asia due to ‘bureaucratic and commercial issues’, forcing them to remain in training at the Florida Blue Training Center until mid-November. This development could prove beneficial for Messi and his teammates as some of them need to travel to their countries for the upcoming FIFA international break and will now have the opportunity to rest without the expected hustle and bustle.

Although in recent days the organizers in cooperation with Chinese newspapers have noted the suboptimal scheduling of the two matches, the confirmation of the cancellation suggests that it was not the right time for the South Florida team to travel in an effort to expand their brand. as a sports franchise.
