October 17, 2019
LaLiga have submitted a formal request to the RFEF for a match to be played in the United States between Atletico Madrid and Villareal.
The match is scheduled to take place on the sixth of December and has the backing of both teams and is part of LaLiga’s continued strategy for international growth.
The objective of this action is to maintain the international growth of football for the benefit of clubs, players, fans, Spanish football and the global image of Spain.
LaLiga President Javier Tebas said: “This match will be another boost to the internationalisation strategy of LaLiga, which is providing great results for all our member clubs and SADs. We hope that this time we can carry out this positive action for everyone, as other leagues like the NFL or the NBA do when they stage matches overseas.”
