The World’s Largest Cruise Line Debuts as the Club’s Front-of-Jersey Partner in the Upcoming 2024 Campaign
Inter Miami CF’s players are suiting up for a new era. Royal Caribbean International, Inter Miami’s Main Partner and Official Vacation Partner, and the Club revealed the world’s largest cruise line will make its mark front and center on every Inter Miami jersey as the Official Jersey Partner, beginning with upcoming 2024 campaign.
Today, La Noche – the Club’s away kit – was on full display with the cruise line’s bold crown and anchor logo at a celebration on the new highly anticipated vacation, Icon of the Seas. Four-time Emmy award-winning host Mario Lopez, along with Royal Caribbean and Inter Miami ownership and executives, joined players, staff and fans in the surprise unveiling. Starting tonight at 9 p.m. EST, fans can be among the first to purchase the La Noche jersey with the crown and anchor by visiting MLSStore.com; and in February, the jersey will be available for sale on Icon_.
“Both Royal Caribbean Group and Inter Miami share the values of dreaming and determination – and the highs of the unbelievable moments when those dreams come true. It’s exciting to now combine forces, and I can’t wait for the future that our two organizations will forge for our industries, for our fans around the world, and of course, for our local communities here in South Florida,” said Royal Caribbean Group President and CEO Jason Liberty.
“Today marks a significant moment in an authentic partnership between two South Florida-based powerhouses, both deeply committed to the community we proudly call home,” said Inter Miami CF Chief Business Officer Xavier Asensi. “We eagerly anticipate our players taking the field and sporting the Royal Caribbean logo on our iconic jerseys in front of our incredible fans at our stadium, across the country and around the globe.”
Today’s reveal of the new front-of-jersey partner and the first look at one of the striking kits, which is inspired by the energy and excitement of the Magic City at night, follows the August 2023 announcement of the two globally known and South Florida-based powerhouses joining forces. The multiyear partnership combines the passion and commitment the hometown favorites share for the city, their community and creating memorable moments with fans around the world. On and off the field, the partners have since come together across stadium LEDs, in-match content, fan zone activations as well as on social and digital platforms. Plus, more will come to life in local community initiatives, experiences on Royal Caribbean ships and more. Additional details about the partnership will be revealed at a later date.
“We are filled with a great sense of pride to come together with Inter Miami to represent South Florida and the community Royal Caribbean has called home for 55 years,” said Michael Bayley, president and CEO, Royal Caribbean International. “We’ve created vacation memories with millions of families around the world, and now we’ll be at the center of the memorable moments so many fans make supporting our home team – a team we now call family.”
From one celebration to the next, Royal Caribbean also welcomed its newest vacation, Icon, at a naming celebration with The Icon of Icon of the Seas on hand – world-renowned fútbol player and TIME’s 2023 Athlete of the Year Lionel Messi. The eight-time Ballon d’Or winner officially named and bestowed safekeeping onto the world’s best vacation, its dedicated crew and the adventurers who will experience it for many years to come.
Icon is the first-of-its-kind combination of every vacation, from the resort getaway to the beach escape and the theme park adventure, and the cruise line’s best-selling ship.
