Commenting on the event, La liga President Javier Tebas said in a release: "Our aim is to take La Liga all across the world, and further establish the league as one that is global and inclusive. We feel that the most important way to grow is to be closer to our fans, and provide tem with newer, more exciting experiences."

"Both Real Madrid and Barcelona enjoy huge popularity in and we feel that we owe the passionate fans of the league, a chance to experience such an event. This is a big step, and what we believe will be a great start to our journey in India," he added.
