Soccer superstar Lionel Messi's Inter Miami play the New England Revolution Saturday night at 7:30pm in Foxborough at Gillette Stadium.

Why it matters: New England fans might get their first chance to see soccer's top player in action.

  • Messi's appearance could also set an attendance record for the Revs.

Over 60,000 tickets have already been sold for the 65,000-seat stadium.

The intrigue: Fans won't know if Messi is even playing until about an hour before the game starts.

  • Gillette's astroturf field poses greater injury risk for players, and sometimes top talent sits out games on turf.
