La Liga will make over $2.2 billion from their TV rights for 2019.

The Premier League, in comparison, will earn over $11.5 billion from television over the same period.

La Liga president Javier Tebas said that the El Clasico is aimed towards audiences in United States and Asia.

“Of the two clásicos there are in a season, one should always be so people in Asia can watch without being asleep and the other should always be so people in the US can watch without being asleep. It is important to recognise that the followers of Spanish football are not just people who live in Spain. We must also respect the fans who are in Asia and the Americas – they are also contributing because they pay for their TV subscriptions, which in turn allows the clubs to pay big stars and helps turns La Liga into a global product.”
