Barca President says La Liga Should Play 3 Games Abroad a Year

By Admin

Barcelona president Josep Maria Bartomeu says La Liga should play three games outside of Spain a year.

“If we want La Liga to be strong, we are to play in these games,” Bartomeu told said. “At Barca we have sometimes been talking to La Liga and have been telling them that if you want to promote La Liga more and more, then we should have three games of the year outside – one in America, one in the Middle East and one in Asia. We have to go and be closer to the fans. We do the summer tours in July and August to go closer to the fans. It’s us showing respect to them, going to Miami would have been respect to our fans in the USA.”

La Liga has signed to play one game a season in the US as part of a 15-year deal with media company Relevent. Catalan neighbours Girona and Barcelona had agreed to move their game to the Hard Rock Stadium on 26 January.
