Barcelona, Girona & La Liga request permission for Miami fixture

Barcelona, Girona and La Liga (LFP) have put forward a request to the Spanish FA (RFEF) that they be allowed to play a fixture in Miami, Florida later this season.

In a statement issued by the LFP, Girona’s ‘home’ match against the Catalans could be switched to the Hard Rock Stadium on January 26 with a 20:45 CET kick-off time.

The news comes after last month’s announcement that La Liga had made a deal with multinational media, sports and entertainment company Relevent that will last 15 years and boost the competition in North America by seeing a Spanish top-flight match played in the United States for the first time.

And Girona revealed this week that they would accept the proposal to play against the Catalan giants in another country as it presents “a great opportunity for expansion and growth”.
