A tribute to the soccer sensation’s ideal burger components, the Messi Burger consists of ten flavourful ingredients for a game-changing take on Hard Rock’s Legendary Steak Burger. The Messi Burger kicks off with a juicy double stack of the finest ground beef patties, seasoned, and seared to perfection. Tastebuds score big with the burger’s winning combination of toppings: provolone cheese, sliced chorizo, caramelized red onion, and Hard Rock’s signature, spicy, smoky sauce served on a toasted brioche bun with shredded romaine lettuce and vine-ripened tomato. The burger can be topped with a fried egg and can be served a side of seasoned fries.
“It is an honour to take our partnership with world-renowned soccer star, Lionel Messi, and the LIVE GREATNESS campaign to the next level with his very own take on Hard Rock Cafe’s Legendary Steak Burger,” said Jon Lucas, COO of Hard Rock International. “We are excited to launch the Messi Burger as a pilot program in Florida, right in Hard Rock’s own backyard, as we prepare for the global launch in March.”

About LIVE GREATNESS
In 2021, Messi teamed with Hard Rock for the brand’s LIVE GREATNESS campaign, an initiative built on the fan-focused principles that have guided Hard Rock since the opening of its first Cafe location in London in 1971 and aiming to inspire fans while calling on them to unite under their love for the iconic entertainment and hospitality brand.
The collaboration pays homage to Hard Rock’s roots, as the brand’s world-famous T-shirts came about when the original Hard Rock Cafe London sponsored a local soccer team in the 1970’s. Hard Rock and Messi have come together to unveil a new collection of merchandise, which includes some of Messi’s iconic symbols such as the number 10, the lion, and his own logo. All merchandise from the collaboration between Hard Rock and Lionel Messi is available in stores and online. Check out the add from Messi teaming up with the LIVE GREATNESS campaign from last year:
