(CNN Spanish) -- 

The South Florida team begins its friendly tour with a match against the El Salvador team this Friday at 8 pm Eastern time, at the Cuscatlán stadium in San Salvador.

Gerardo Martino's team begins a seven-game series that will take them to El Salvador, Saudi Arabia, Hong Kong and Japan before returning to Miami to close the tour against Newell's Old Boys of Argentina.

Nothing more beautiful than playing with friends

Four friends and extraordinary players who come together for a new adventure, after their glorious time at Barcelona and trying to take Major League Soccer (MLS) by storm.

Lionel Messi, Sergio Busquets, Jordi Alba and the new reinforcement of the Garzas, Luis Suárez, united once again on a playing field.

"It is an image that brings back beautiful memories, that can excite people, and now it is our turn to show them on the field," Suárez remarked in his first press conference.

The latest luxury addition to Gerardo Martino's team comes from Gremio in Brazil and like his entire career he promises goals.

After scoring 26 goals in 22 games last year for the Porto Alegre team, the Uruguayan arrives as the goal quota that Inter Miami needed and the last card to form a poker of aces with his former Barcelona teammates.

The Savior

In the Central American country they are ready to receive Messi and company.

The Cuscatlán stadium is expected to be complete.

Tickets sell in the range of $200 to $475.

All tickets will be electronic, and a maximum purchase of 12 tickets is allowed per credit card.


In sports, Spanish coach David Dóniga has not yet confirmed the team and although he understands what it means to face Inter Miami, he acknowledged that they are focused on the day to day.

“It is difficult to find something that stops a player who is unrepeatable,” he said when asked about number 10 and pointed to collective work to try to stop the Argentine star.

For his part, Harold Osorio, the Chicago Fire player, acknowledged that Messi is his idol, but stressed that once on the field he will be one more and stated that they seek to “play a great game and go for the victory.”

Inter Miami's preseason

The South Florida team begins a friendly tour with El Salvador as the first stop.

Martino brings his 4 stars for the first match of a tour that will include six more matches between the United States, Saudi Arabia, Hong Kong and Japan.

After the match against the Salvadoran team, Inter Miami heads to Dallas to face Dallas FC next Monday.

After that match they will travel more than 12,000 kilometers to Riyadh, Saudi Arabia, to prepare for two friendlies.

The first will be on January 29 against Neymar's team, Al Hilal, who will not have the Brazilian star due to injury.

The second will awaken the nostalgia of many football fans when once again Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo are face to face.

Inter Miami vs Al-Nassr will be the perfect excuse to see two of the best in history again and perhaps for the last time on the same playing field.

The game will be on Thursday, February 1 at 1 pm Miami time at the Kingdom Arena stadium.

The last two games on the Asian continent will be on February 4 against the Hong Kong XI team and on the 7th against Vissel Kobe of the Japanese league.

The tour will end in Miami when Inter Miami faces the Argentine team of which Lionel Messi is a fan: Newell's Old Boys.
