The trophy, which Messi received in Paris on Monday, will be presented to the crowd before kickoff, with that ceremony also set to include remarks by MLS Commissioner Don Garber and Inter Miami co-owner Jorge Mas, the team said in a press release.
And there will be no shortage of themes built around the No. 8, commemorating the record time Messi has won the Ballon d'Or - presented annually to the world's top player.
The team is saying it will 'celebr8' Messi's trophy by playing the extra game, and a special drink priced at $8.88. There will be gold fireworks and a gold carpet entrance as well, the team said, another nod to the gold trophy.
