Barcelona president Josep Maria Bartomeu said that there must be 3 La Liga games played outside of Spain every season to promote the league.

He added that the games should be split between North American, Asia, and the Middle East.

"If we want La Liga to be strong, we are to play in these games. At Barca we have sometimes been talking to La Liga and have been telling them that if you want to promote La Liga more and more, then we should have three games of the year outside - one in America, one in the Middle East and one in Asia. We have to go and be closer to the fans. We do the summer tours in July and August to go closer to the fans. It's us showing respect to them, going to Miami would have been respect to our fans in the USA."
