Football is arguably the most popular sport in the world, and many people buy football shirts to represent their favorite teams. Two big companies that sponsor some of the biggest clubs in the world are Nike and Adidas. Many football fans also purchase their favorite player's shirts no matter what team they play for. Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi are two great examples of how football fans of these two footballers follow their career paths by watching where they play and supporting them by purchasing their shirts. More people are wearing Al Nassr shirts, and many are wearing Inter Miami shirts.

Manchester United and Real Madrid are two of the biggest football teams in the world and have many supporters worldwide. Despite this, these two jerseys aren't the highest-selling shirts in Adidas. According to many reports regarding Adidas clothing, Lionel Messi’s Inter Miami shirt is reportedly Adidas’ best-selling shirt of any sport. Even though Adidas sponsors teams like Real Madrid, Manchester United, Argentina, Bayern Munich, and more, Lionel Messi is on top of those teams and has grown in popularity since his move to America.

Messi joined Inter Miami last summer, and in less than a year, he has helped the MLS viewership grow and increased Apple TV MLS Season Pass subscriptions. Many celebrities and popular athletes have occasionally attended an Inter Miami game and it could continue to be like that for the next few years. Inter Miami not only depends on Messi to increase popularity, but the signings of Luis Suarez, Jordi Alba, and Sergio Busquets have led the football community to pay attention. Messi continues to break big numbers with his deal with Adidas, and his move with Inter Miami has been an economic success.
