El Classico To Be Moved To Madrid Due To Political Instability
17 October 2019
Farai Dziva|La Liga have made a request to move this month’s El Clasico from Camp Nou to Bernabeu.
The request is due to the political protests happening in Catalonia after nine Catalan separatist leaders were jailed on Monday.
The League asked the Spanish Football Federation (RFEF) for their opinion, and the RFEF competitions committee is expected to make its decision by Thursday 24 October.
Barcelona and Real Madrid were not involved in La Liga’s initial request and there has been no official response from either club.
El Clasico is scheduled for 26 October.
