After last year’s failed attempt to bring a La Liga match to the US (Girona-Barcelona, you’ll recall) it looks as though the league may try again, and has spoken to Villarreal and Atletico Madrid about playing in Miami on December 8th.

This is supposed to be a home game for Villarreal; Sr. Roig said today both teams were theoretically down with the idea, but whether or not the RFEF will approve, and whether compensation can be worked out for Villarreal fans to travel to the match, etc. are all unknown.

I’m thinking it might be a lot to work out in the space of less than 2 months. But we’ll see.
