LaLiga, Spain’s top division football league is organising a match screening of the tie between two of the best clubs in the world – the El Clasico. FC Barcelona is all set to host Real Madrid C.F. at Camp Nou on May 6 for this highly anticipated match.
LaLiga will bring all the excitement of this global event closer to LaLiga’s Indian fans at Instituto Cervantes on 6th May 2018.
The upcoming El Clasico will be Barcelona’s first match since winning the LaLiga title for the 25th time. It will be the second meeting this season, following the Santiago Bernabeu encounter, which Barcelona won 3-0. Footballing giants like Lionel Messi, Cristiano Ronaldo, Philippe Coutinho, and Gareth Bale amongst others will put their best foot forward to establish dominance. This could also be the legendary Andres Iniesta’s last El Clasico, as the 33-year old announced that he is to end his glittering stint with the Blaugrana.
LaLiga and the Instituto Cervantes, which promotes the teaching, study, and use of the Spanish language internationally, have teamed up to offer fans the chance to watch one of the greatest football rivalries. Taking their place amongst the crowd will be the winners of competitions run on social media, students from the Instituto Cervantes and members of local Real Madrid and Barcelona supporters’ clubs. Carlos Varona, the school’s director and Jose Ramon Barañano, the Spanish ambassador to India, will also attend the event.
Commenting on the announcement, Jose Cachaza, Country Manager, LaLiga India said, “We are excited to be hosting a live screening of the battle between two superpowers, and creating an exciting experience for supporting their favourite teams. This match grabs the attention of all football fans across the globe, and fans in India enjoy it with phenomenal passion. We, and Instituto Cervantes, want to provide fans an experience that they will always remember.”
