Moments ago, it was announced that La Liga has struck a 15-year-partnership that will see regular season games take part in USA and Canada.
In a seemingly insane move, actual competitive matches will take place outside of Spain for the first time.
If the Premier League follows suit, we’ll be fuming. Disgusted, in fact. It’s bad enough paying extortionate ticket prices, having to have subscriptions to Sky Sports and BT, being shafted every time we travel abroad and everything else in between, but this would be too much.
Fans are used and abused as commodities; as tools to greater profits – but when will clubs and organisations realise that without us you have nothing?
If Liverpool have to play regular league games in USA, I’m done.

Not one to go on about modern football and all of that but La Liga playing a game/games in the USA is grim

La Liga to have regular season matches hosted in the U.S. You just know the Premier League will be looking at that too.
Coming soon: United v Liverpool in New York, live exclusively on Amazon Prime :/
