Lionel Messi signed with MLS team Inter Miami in July, marking the first time he has played for a non-European team in over 20 years. The international soccer star has been electric in his run so far and hasn’t seemed to break a sweat in leading Miami to a major tournament bid. Tickets for the Leagues Cup final are going fast, and prices are skyrocketing. If you suddenly feel messy for soccer and can’t make it in person, we’ll show you how to watch Messi and Inter Miami vs. Nashville in the Leagues Cup final live stream.
Inter Miami knocked Philadelphia out of the running with a 4-1 thrashing. Messi only scored one goal in that matchup, but his total effectiveness (he leads tournament players with nine goals) has inspired teammates to find the net more to pile on the wins.

How to watch Inter Miami vs. Nashville Leagues Cup Final live streams in the US
The MLS Season Pass usually costs $14.99 per month or $79 per year for Apple TV Plus subscribers in the United States ($99 annually for non-subscribers), but Apple has dropped prices considerably for those interested in watching Messi’s electric run with Miami.
Existing Apple TV Plus subscribers can watch the rest of the 2023 MLS season for just $39 now. If you’d rather pay monthly, that price was slightly reduced to $12.99. Those interested in MLS alone can get the full Season Pass for $49 or $14.99 monthly. We’ve seen similar half-off offers in regions like the UK.
US residents also have FS1 to fall back on. If you don’t have a cable package that includes FS1, consider signing up for cheap TV streaming services like Sling Blue (the first month is $20 for new users). FuboTV also has FS1 as part of its base Pro plan that costs $75 monthly, but there’s a free 7-day trial available, just long enough to catch the Leagues Cup final tonight.

A third-place matchup will precede the Leagues Cup Final. Here are the remaining matches and their airtimes in the Eastern time zone. Messi’s run won’t end here, however, as a couple of months’ worth of games remain in the 2023 MLS season, so it’s worth picking up the MLS pass from Apple, given the form he’s in.
