La Liga confirm new date for El Clasico

La Liga confirm new date for El Clasico after dispute over rearrangement

November 13, 2019 By Ali M.
After a disagreement between the league organizers and the Spanish FA, a date has been set for this Camp Nou fixture.

It's official: El Clasico will be held on December 18. La Liga have confirmed the new date for the immensely popular Barcelona vs Real Madrid fixture after coming to an agreement with the Spanish FA and the two involved clubs.

This Camp Nou clash was originally scheduled to be played on October 26. However, after prominent Catalan separatist leaders were sentenced to jail time, unrest broke out in the region.

Due to the political instability and insecurity, the game was postponed. Los Blancos and the Blaugrana both agreed to reschedule this clash on December 18, which the Spanish FA accepted, but La Liga initially opposed this decision.

The league organizers did not prefer this date as that date falls on a Wednesday and not a weekend, which would hinder the audience count. Furthermore, there were fears of TV clash with the Copa del Rey and FIFA Club World Cup.

However, all of those concerns have been put to bed and LaLiga has reached an agreement with all involved parties to confirm the December 18 fixture. Kick-off is scheduled at 20:00 CET.
