“We are excited that we can attract someone of Victor’s caliber to our club, and believe he will be an extremely integral addition for us, particularly as we grow our season ticket base and prepare for Miami Freedom Park,” said Asensi.
“Major League Soccer has big aspirations to become one of the premier fútbol leagues in the world and it is on that trajectory,” said Oliver. “Inter Miami CF is a club with immense potential playing in a league on the rise and as a soccer fan and executive, I find that very exciting. With Miami Freedom Park coming in 2025 and the FIFA World Cup coming to Miami in 2026, I look forward to helping Inter Miami achieve its goal to become the top club in North America.”

In addition, FC Barcelona’s Sports Museum and Tours welcomed the most visitors in the World and secured the highest revenue in the World among sports museums while Oliver was at the helm.
