Atletico Madrid and Villarreal will play their December 6th match in Miami.

"Atletico Madrid work every season to promote our brand across all continents. A match in the US would allow us to continue working on it. Additionally, we'd bring Spanish football to fans outside our country. It'd be a great game that would mark the future," said Atleti chief Miguel Angel Gil.

Villarreal president Fernando Roig agreed with Gil's assessment.

"Everything about exporting football and Spanish sport is good for everyone. And, of course, for Villarreal. The US is a very important country where we have official club academies."
