The Director of a big Spanish media company Mediapro Jaume Roures told about the decision of UEFA to hold the Champions League final in New York.

“Currently, negotiations are hold on the future of the Champions League final in New York” – quoted Roures Catalunya Rádio.

Roures also noted that UEFA followed the example of the leadership of La Liga, which decided to hold some matches in the United States and Canada to promote European football in the North America.

According to Football Espana, some players opposed this decision. According to some media they are seriously considering a strike. Despite the protests  managers in Primera refused to make concessions in the organization of matches in the United States and Canada.

Earlier it became known that the first match of La Liga, which will take place in the United States, will be the game between Girona and Barcelona ( January 27).

This season the Champions League final will be held in Madrid at the Wanda Metropolitano stadium, and in 2020 at the Olympic stadium in Istanbul.
