LaLiga Issue Statement After Court Blocks Miami Fixture
November 15, 2019
LaLiga have released a statement insisting they still have hope for their planned Miami fixture later this season.
A court in Madrid have blocked the game in the interim, however it will be settled properly in February next year.
The statement from LaLiga says:
Madrid’s Mercantile Court No. 12 today decided not to grant interim measures to stage an official LaLiga match in Miami in a case about the pending authorisation from the Spanish Football Federation (RFEF).
LaLiga respects this decision, which does not prejudge the substance of the matter, which will be permanently settled in February 2020.
Staging an official LaLiga match abroad is part of a long-term LaLiga strategy for international growth. We hope that from February forth LaLiga will be able to organise an official match beyond Spanish borders.
Bringing clubs closer to their global fans represents a significant opportunity to connect with them and to continue working to increase LaLiga’s followers around the world. This international growth leads to benefits for the clubs, their players, their fans, LaLiga as a whole, Spanish football and the brand of Spain.
