Barça and Real Madrid want to fix the Clásico on December 18th, and the Competition Committee will give its approval. LaLiga would face serious problems after the postponement of its most important match
The first Classical of LaLiga 2019-20 search his gap in the calendar, and reposition it is not being a simple task. The Committee of Competition opted for denying his dispute on 26 October -as it was foreseen- by the delicate social situation and political that in the last days is affecting to Catalonia, and his decision has caused a discussion that has left the most important party of the championship in the air.
FC Barcelona and Real Madrid have agreed already on 18 December like new date, and the Spanish Federation will give his prompt approval. The organism rector left the election in hands of the clubs and gave them of margin until next Monday, when it is foreseen that it announce of official form that gives them the seen well and when it could arrive the reply of the patronal, that is not satisfied with the day chosen.
LaLiga Could resort this pact in front of the Justice, since it considers that it prejudices gravely his interests. The organism that directs Javier Thebes insisted in looking for solutions to keep the clash in the day 26, since any modification strikes directly his commercial and audiovisual agreements. The problem is that his first alternative, a change of stadium, was refused flatly by culés and 'merengues'.
The impact to move the Barça-Madrid would be conclusive to level of markets and operators. Move it of a Saturday to the 13:00 to a Wednesday at night means that in Asia will not be able to broadcast -in this time band there are a lot of countries in which they are sleeping-, and this no only would affect to China, but to the sponsorships tied in Middle East, India, Japan, Indonesia, Australia, Vietnam, Singapore, Thailandia or Malaysia.
In addition to suspending numerous acts of promotion, the case also has turned into a headache for the fans, that to day of today still do not know when will contest the Classical of the Camp Nou. LaLiga Understands that continue with the 26Or had been a lower evil and there was trastocado less the plans of all the parts involved, but both groups denied and could not explore this road.
LaLiga Wants to avoid a hit to the Glass of Rey
Assuming that it will not play on 26 October, LaLiga has proposed on 4 December for salvaguardar the Glass of Rey. As it already warned Thebes, on 18 December are foreseen several eliminatory of the tournament of the ko, and fit the Classical in the same day would suppose an important devaluation of his audiovisual rights. If Barça, Madrid and RFEF follow rowing in contrary direction, the subject could finish in the Courts, what would lengthen the discussion between the two organisms that direct the Spanish football.
