An enthusiastic fan stepped forward and named a stadium in honor of the 2021 Copa América champion, paying a unique tribute to Lionel Messi. Earlier this month, Lionel Messi said goodbye to FC Barcelona in tears after 21 years representing the Spanish club. Messi has now moved to Paris, the French capital, and started a new life with nine-time Ligue 1 champion Paris Saint-Germain (PSG).
The stadium is 1000 km away from the hometown of the champion player
It is reported that an avid Messi fan expressed his love for the former Barcelona superstar by building the Messi Stadium 1,000 kilometers away from the hometown of the 2021 Copa America champion. The stadium has no lights, real courts, beacons and standardized targets, but what is really eye-catching is that it is a small stadium located on a hill with a magnificent view of the Andes.
