2021 Season

2021 Season

Club Internacional de Fútbol Miami opened their second season at their home in Fort Lauderdale. The stadium is located at the site of the team’s training facility off of Commercial Boulevard, at the site of the former Lockhart Stadium.

Shortly before the season began, the team signed a naming rights agreement with Autonation, the Fort Lauderdale-based car dealership. Thus, Inter Miami’s stadium became known as DRV PNK Stadium.

The 2021 MLS season got off to a delayed start as the US was still being impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic. A total of 8,000 spectators were allowed to attend in person at DRV PNK Stadium in Fort Lauderdale as the local side took on David Beckham’s former team Los Angeles Galaxy. Beckham himself was in attendance at an Inter Miami game for the first time, as were Tom Brady and musician Pharrell Williams.

Inter Miami studios went inside the match for a well-produced vídeo that featured the supporters groups as well as video of head coach Phil Neville’s team talks before and during the game. Here is All-Access 2021 – Match Day 1:

The vast history of soccer in South Florida has deep roots in Fort Lauderdale dating back to the original Strikers of the 70s and 80s, the Miami Fusion of the 90s and early 2000s as well as the recent clubs that have called Lockhart Stadium their home.”
