FIFA Considers Premier League and La Liga Games Abroad Amid Backlash

FIFA is contemplating a significant move that could see Premier League and La Liga matches played overseas. The football governing body is establishing a working group to evaluate the potential impact of hosting domestic league games in foreign countries.

Premier League, though currently not pursuing this option, acknowledges that recent developments have left the possibility open for future endeavors. Similarly, La Liga is gearing up for overseas fixtures as early as the 2025-26 season, reviving plans previously stalled by logistical challenges.

Former England international Gary Lineker has voiced his opposition to FIFA’s potential decision, stating a firm “No” on social media. However, FIFA remains committed to gathering information and issuing recommendations before finalizing any decisions.

Relevant Sports, proponents of overseas matches, have been active in driving discussions around this concept. Their previous efforts, including organizing the Premier League Summer Series in the USA in 2023, have contributed to the ongoing dialogue.

The proposed shift has far-reaching implications for club football, potentially reshaping the traditional landscape. As FIFA continues its deliberations, the football world awaits to see how these developments unfold and whether La Liga’s ambitions of hosting matches abroad become a reality in the near future.
