La Liga request to host match in Miami

Madrid, Sep 11 (Agencies) | Publish Date: 9/11/2018 12:06:17 PM IST

La Liga says it has requested permission from the Spanish Football Federation to play a regular-season match between Girona and Barcelona in Miami on January 26.

Staging the match abroad is part of the league’s goal of promoting football and its brand in other countries, but the idea has drawn criticism from some players, fans and clubs. Spain’s players’ association said the athletes were never consulted about the league’s plan and ultimately they will have the final say on whether to play the game at the Hard Rock Stadium.

La Liga president Javier Tebas met with the association on Monday and planned to give players a detailed description of the project. The league said a compensation package has been offered to season-ticket holders of Girona, who will be relinquishing a home game.

Girona had said the game would help promote the club and the city.
