La Liga Agreed Deal to Play League Games in the United States and Canada

La Liga have agreed a groundbreaking deal to play league matches in the United States and Canada – with the superstars at Atletico, Real Madrid and Barcelona set to make European football history by playing domestic matches abroad.

Dates, location and teams have yet to be confirmed but the Spanish top-flight’s hierarchy have announced a multi-million pound 15-year agreement with a ‘a multinational media, sports and entertainment group’, possibly as early as this year, according to the Telegraph.

Entertainment group Relevent are the company behind the move, and currently operate the International Champions Cup, the world’s largest summer pre-season tournament, and Barcelona and Real Madrid faced each other in the tournament in Miami last year.

There are no exact fixtures announced as yet but La Liga president Javier Tebas has already dismissed the possibility of taking the El Clasico away from Spanish soil.

But what do you make of the news?

Surely, with Spain the first country to break cover, it won’t be too long before other countries follow suit?
