The president of the Bundesliga has ruled out moving league matches in Germany abroad, stating it is a ‘line we will not cross’.
The comments from Christian Seifert come in light of La Liga announcing have signed a 15-year deal with Relevent to play league matches in the United States.
Last month, the Spanish players union (AFE) confirmed that players would consider strike action in their opposition to such plans.
“We will never play a league game outside Germany, that's a line we will not cross,” Seifert told reporters, as cited by ESPN FC.
“In my opinion, would be a lack of respect of the fans and the players to take an official championship match abroad
“When it involves points that will ultimately decide on promotion, relegation or participation in international competition.”
