“The United Kingdom is a strategic market for LaLiga. Football is deeply rooted in British and Spanish society and represents a unique vehicle for connecting with both cultures. Just like LaLiga UK, the Spanish Chamber of Commerce in the United Kingdom stands at the intersection between these two great countries and helps us to celebrate the strong ties that bind us, both on and off the pitch.”
