Inter Miami charged with a $2 million fine

Inter Miami was charged with a record $2 million fine and other punishments for violating MLS roster and salary rules after the signing of France international midfielder Blaise Matuidi. Inter is co-owned by former Manchester United, England, and Real Madrid star David Beckham.

Inter Miami enticed Matuidi away from Serie A champions Juventus for their inaugural season in 2020, with the World Cup-winning star teaming up with Gonzalo Higuain after the club used targeted allocation money (TAM). 

However, in March MLS implied that the team possessed four designated players rather than the three authorized and ruled that Inter Miami was not a roster complaint.

As a result, Inter Miami received the league’s highest fine in history a penalty of $2,271,250 reduction in allocation dollars for the 2022 and 2023 seasons.  In addition, former sporting director Paul McDonough was suspended through the 2022 season and subsequently left Atlanta United while managing owner Jorge Mas was fined $250,000.

“The integrity of our rules is sacrosanct, and it is a fundamental principle of our league that our clubs are responsible for adhering to all league regulations,” said MLS commissioner Don Garber.

“Our rules will not be compromised. These sanctions reflect the severity of Inter Miami’s violations, should encourage complete cooperation by all parties in future investigations, and will serve as a deterrent for clubs from violating roster rules.”

In a statement, Mas said: “Inter Miami CF acknowledges that the club violated Major League Soccer’s roster rules in our first season.”

“We have worked closely with MLS to address these issues and have made significant changes in our management structure. Following our inaugural season, we took a deep look at our soccer operations leadership group and made decisions that not only strengthened our internal roster compliance measures, but also better positioned us to build a sustainable, long-term competition strategy with the hiring of Chris Henderson as chief soccer officer and sporting director in 2021.”

“Inter Miami is an ambitious club with big aspirations. We believe our fanbase, market and ownership group propel us to be one of North America’s most-followed futbol teams in the world. We are committed to supporting our team and building a roster we are proud of.”
