La Liga players to decide on fate of USA game.

Players will have the final say on plans to play Girona’s ‘home’ match against Barcelona in Miami, according to the Spanish players’ union (AFE).

Girona are working with La Liga and Barcelona over the match, which is due to take place on 27 January.

La Liga, Spain’s top flight, has agreed to play one game a season in the US as part of a 15-year deal with media company Relevent.

At Monday’s meeting with La Liga, AFE reiterated its “unease” at the plans.

Girona is in Catalonia, about 60 miles north east of Barcelona. The club say the match represents a chance for expansion and growth, both for the club and the region.
