  • Lionel Messi could be set to play in America

La Liga officials announced on Thursday it is planning to play a match across the Atlantic as part of a new 15-year partnership with sports and entertainment group Relevent to promote football in North America.

Five years ago, the company founded the International Champions Cup, which is a series of a friendly matches played outside of Europe. The league president, Javier Tebas, however, dismissed the possibility of taking the clásico away from Spain.

Spain's top football league, LaLiga will play competitive matches in the USA as early as this season.

As per usual, LaLiga has dispensed with the opinions of the players and has undertaken actions that only benefit them, regardless of the health or risks to the players, and even less the feelings of the following masses of the clubs who are being "forced" to compete in North America once a season.

La Liga hope that the new venture, called La Liga North America, will see them compete with the Premier League for global popularity and increase revenues from sponsors and media rights for the Spanish top-flight.

The joint venture, La Liga North America, didn't announce the dates for the US games or the teams that would feature in them, but Relevent executive chairman Charlie Stillitano told The Washington Post's Steve Goff participating teams in the USA games must include La Liga's leading teams, Barcelona, Real Madrid, Atletico Madrid, Sevilla and Valencia.

But La Liga president Javier Tebas dismissed the prospect of El Clasico, which pits Spain's biggest sides Barcelona and Real Madrid against each other, being played overseas.

The Spanish league called the agreement 'an inflection point for soccer in the United States and Canada, ' coming in anticipation of the 2026 World Cup that will be hosted in North America. 'This agreement ensures not only a bright future for soccer in North America, but also for LaLiga and our clubs'.
