The gap can be narrowed
Spanish league officials believe they can close the income gap in comparison to the English Premier League over the next 10 years by adopting an ambitious plan to increase viewership across the world.
Javier Teppas, president of the League of Liga, said the English Premier League had earned television rights, 40 per cent more than his country's, for the injection of about 1.7 billion euros a year.
"I have no doubt that we will be equal to the English Premier League in 10 years, or at least we will be down by about 10%. The most significant difference now is that the market British itself, bigger than the Spanish market. "
"The gap is diminishing at the international level, but our biggest goal is to approach the English Premier League," Teppas said late on Tuesday.
The Spanish league, which already dominates the South American region, is now focused on acquiring new ground in important markets such as China, India and the United States, as well as focusing on Africa.
Over the past four years, the Spanish league has been established in the cities of Shanghai, Delhi, New York, Johannesburg and Dubai, with representatives of the competition in more than 40 countries.
The game schedule has been changed so that an early match can be played so that Asian viewers can watch it, while another late game is played on Sunday for the viewers of the Americas.
"The biggest advantage of the Spanish league, better than the Premier League, is the high level of clubs and players," said Teppas.
Barcelona's Lionel Messi and Real Madrid's Cristiano Ronaldo have won the Golden Ball for the best player in the world for the past nine years.
The two clubs also have won the Champions League in the last four years, while Atletico Madrid have reached the final of the tournament itself twice.
"This concept is what we are working on," Teppas said. "We did not have a comprehensive strategy before."
One of the ideas is to propose one or two out of a total of 380 league matches each season outside Spain, based on the success of the pre-season Barcelona and Real Madrid match in Miami, .
"We are thinking about it," Teppas said. "The first game will be held outside of Spain, often in the United States," he said, adding that he hoped such a match would take place within two years.
As Spanish league ambitions mount, to gain more foreign market fortunes, Teppas has voiced fears
