- Midfielder Benjamin Cremaschi and forwards Leonardo Campana and Josef Martínez have been named to the MLS Team of the Matchday for Matchday 23 of the 2023 regular season. The trio secured their spots on the team after their influential performances in the 2-2 draw against the Columbus Crew at DRV PNK Stadium on Tuesday, July 4.

- Forward Josef Martínez returns to the starting XI and will wear the captain’s armband tonight after a historic performance against Columbus on Tuesday night. The Venezuelan striker not only scored an acrobatic scissor kick screamer to tie the match in its final moments, as the goal brought him level with Dwayne De Rosario for the ninth-most goals in MLS history and brought his MLS regular season tally up to 104. Martínez currently is the team’s top scorer this season with six goals to his name.
- Inter Miami signed defender Israel Boatwright and midfielder Lawson Sunderland on short-term agreements from the Club’s MLS NEXT Pro team, Inter Miami CF II, and both players will start the matchup on the bench.
