It is Major League Soccer and Inter Miami CF policy not to comment on open litigation, but due to apparent widespread confusion about the case and its implications, the Club offers the following remarks.
What is happening?
The trademark dispute between Major League Soccer and Inter Milan focuses on whether Inter Milan can claim an exclusive trademark ownership of, and the right to use, the commonly used term “Inter” standing alone in commercial activity.
The litigation does not concern the brand name or brand marks for Inter Miami CF, whose formal franchise name is Club Internacional de Fútbol Miami.
What does this mean? Is Inter Miami changing its name?
The Club is not in jeopardy of changing its trademark-approved name or marks.
