Messi appearance could see 22-year-old attendance record break in MLS

The New England Revolution are on track to break a 22-year-old attendance record when Lionel Messi and Inter Miami visit on April 27.

The Revs announced Wednesday that more than 60,000 tickets already have been sold, leaving fewer than 5,000 still available for the match at Gillette Stadium in Foxborough, Mass.

New England’s current attendance record is 61,316, established for the 2002 MLS Cup when the Los Angeles Galaxy posted a 1-0 win over the Revolution.

Messi’s attendance is not guaranteed. The eight-time Ballon d’Or winner has missed Miami’s last two MLS matches due to a hamstring injury.

Messi, 36, has recorded three goals and one assist in three MLS matches this season. The Argentina international signed with Inter Miami last July.
