The Spanish La Liga should keep plans to push their games aside.
Hope to host the Spanish Football League in the US primary has once again suffered a setback. The High Regional Court in Madrid upheld a court ruling from March 2020 stating that the Spanish Championship should not be held abroad. The court on Thursday dismissed Lalika’s appeal against the decision.
The Spanish Federation RFEF, which opposed the league’s plans, celebrated the verdict: “This is the second time the courts have taken up the matter, and this time the league’s position has been rejected.” The LaLiga project was not only condemned by RFEF President Luis Rubiolas. Many top clubs talk about “disruption of competition”, but FIFA was also against it.
The dispute has been going on for about three years. Lalica wants to host the second round match between FC Girona and FC Barcelona in Miami, Florida for the 2018-2019 season. “It’s a long-term strategy for international development (Spanish football),” it said. In spreading its brand, Lalica wants to follow the major sports leagues in the United States – and still wants, some of which have been playing overseas for many years.
