In light of the uncertainty surrounding Lionel Messi's availability for Major League Soccer's (MLS) Chicago Fire's home game against Inter Miami on Wednesday, the team has decided to offer a financial incentive to ticket holders.

Lionel Messi, a seven-time Ballon d'Or winner, has been sidelined due to a muscle injury and has missed Miami's last three games. Given his star status, his potential absence has been a concern for the 61,500 fans holding tickets for the sold-out match at Soldier Field.

To address this uncertainty, the Chicago Fire announced on Tuesday that they would provide a $250 credit toward new memberships for the upcoming season to all single-game ticket buyers who attend the Miami match. Additionally, they are offering a $50 credit for those unable to utilize the new member credit, regardless of whether Messi participates or not.

In a statement, Chicago Fire explained their decision, saying, "While we don't yet know the official status of Lionel Messi's availability for our match tomorrow ... we understand that many of our fans may be disappointed if they don't get the chance to see him play."

Messi's arrival at Inter Miami in July, just seven months after leading Argentina to victory in the World Cup in Qatar, has generated significant excitement among fans, resulting in a surge in ticket prices for both home and away games.
