La Liga have announced they will start to hold one competitive match per season in the United States and Canada as part of a 15-year deal to promote Spanish football in North America.
The Spanish top flight announced that it had agreed a joint venture with Relevent – the company behind the annual pre-season International Champions Cup.
A La Liga statement read: “As part of the agreement, LaLiga plans to bring a regular season club match to the United States, the first to be played outside of Europe.”
No mention was made of a possible date or location for the match, or of which teams it might involve.
However, reports in the US said it could happen as early as this season, with Miami mentioned as a possible venue.
