Spanish FA: FIFA will also reject La Liga’s US plans

The Spanish FA (RFEF) believe FIFA will back their position of rejecting La Liga matches being played abroad, it has confirmed in a letter.

The RFEF has stated its opposition to the league’s plans to play Spanish league games in the United States, a similar stance taken by FIFA president Gianni Infantino alongside the Spanish Players Union (AFE).

“The RFEF has already replied by letter to La Liga – they know that the game cannot be played,” read an RFEF letter to ESPN FC.

“The RFEF has put everything in FIFA's hands, which will back the NO from the RFEF. EVERYONE'S answer is a NO."

“None of the institutions or authorities want this, right now, La Liga has not requested a meeting.

“Tebas publicly said that he had requested a meeting with [RFEF president Luis] Rubiales and then had to publicly apologise, claiming there was ‘confusion’.”
