The match of the 16th round of La Liga, in which Villarreal and Atlético will take part, will be held for the first time in history not in Spain. It is reported by the publication El Confidencial.
Talk about the possible holding of matches of the Spanish championship in the USA has been going on for several years. A year earlier, President of La Liga Javier Tebas announced that only two championship teams – Real Madrid and Barcelona – could attract international sponsors to organize a meeting in another country. The functionary also mentioned Atlético, but explained that “they grow more slowly.”
The game will take place on December 8 at the Hard Rock Stadium in Miami. The stadium hosted the Super Bowl finals five times, its capacity is more than 65 thousand spectators.
