La Liga launches licensed sports bars around the globe
Spanish’s La Liga is unveiling a unique concept: a chain of licensed sports bars to be opened around the globe. The ‘LaLiga Twentynine’s’ bars are going to support the league’s international expansion.
The bars are expected to combine gastronomy, entertainment and football to create ‘a unique and interactive environment’.
Óscar Mayo, business, marketing and international development director at LaLiga, announced that the league has plans to open 30 such places within the next seven years. Read more

When athletes are kept in bubbles, their parents get creative
One of the effects of playing games in bubbles is that the players close friends and family members are not allowed to support them in the venues.
