Manchester City encouraged Girona to move home match against Barcelona to the United States, claims La Liga chief

Friday, September 7th, 2018

Manchester City encouraged Girona to be part of the first La Liga match to be played in the United States early next year, the competition’s president Javier Tebas has claimed. Last month La Liga announced a 15-year deal with Relevent Sports, the US entertainment company that runs the International Champions Cup preseason tournament, to stage top-flight Spanish league matches in North America from this season onwards. Girona have accepted La Liga and Relevent’s offer to move their home match against Barcelona in January 2019 to Miami, and Tebas suggested that they did so partly at the urging of City, who became joint-majority shareholders in the Spanish club along with manager Pep Guardiola’s brother and agent Pere last year.

Tottenham to play Man City and three Champions League games at Wembley

Monday, September 3rd, 2018

Tottenham have confirmed that their Premier League meeting with Manchester City at the end of October and all three of their home Champions League group games will be played at Wembley. The club announced in August that they had been forced to delay the move into their new stadium at White Hart Lane until at least late October due to "issues with the critical safety systems", after initially targeting September 15. At the time of that announcement, Spurs remained hopeful of being able to face City at their new home on October 28, but any chance of that has now been dashed – the game being confirmed for England's national stadium a day later due to a clash with an NFL fixture between the Philadelphia Eagles and Jacksonville Jaguars.
