LaLiga Takes Legal Steps over Disputed US Venue for Girona-Barcelona Game

MADRID – LaLiga’s president Javier Tebas confirmed on Thursday the Spanish soccer league association had taken legal steps to ensure the Girona-Barcelona clash will be played in Miami, despite strong opposition from Association of Spanish Footballers.

Tebas made these remarks following a LaLiga assembly attended by the president of the Spanish federation Luis Rubiales, who said that the dispute over the venue for the game was a thing of the past.

“The federation has not responded yet in either way, and we have already proceeded to take the corresponding legal steps where needed,” Tebas said. “I am not going to say where, but we have already resorted to third parties to decide. We think we have the right for the game to be played in Miami.”

Neither Catalan club has opposed the proposal of playing the game scheduled for Jan. 26 in the United States, according to Tebas, who highlighted that the competent committee – consisting of seven La Liga clubs, seven second-tier clubs and the LaLiga president – approved it unanimously.

Tebas acknowledged he had not communicated with FIFA President Gianni Infantino after the FIFA Council said that the game should be played in Spain, and he added that there was no rule that prevents playing a LaLiga game abroad.

According to FIFA’s statutes, the sport’s international governing body has the power to make a final decision on whether to authorize a match.
