For Charlie Stillitano, the football federations around the world should look to grow the sport and not make any obstaclesRelevent Sports chairman Charlie Stillitano, spoke today to potential investors for La Liga United States official match.The executive was asked if he believes FIFA should interfere with the planned matches in foreign soil.“First and foremost, the role of these federations is to grow the sport. We had El Clásico here two years ago. It was the highest gate ever for a game here in the US. It shows you the desire people had to get tickets to the game,” he said as quoted by The Sports Business.Zidane hails ‘quality’ James Rodriguez after Real Madrid’s win Andrew Smyth – September 14, 2019 Zinedine Zidane reserved special praise for James Rodriguez after his starring role in Real Madrid’s 3-2 win over Levante.“It’s important to look at it both ways. All these clubs are looking to be global brands. You can’t do this without the clubs and the players. They want to do it. They want to get their brand in the US.”“A lot of what we see is everyone trying to catch up with the Premier League, how much they have made from TV rights and how they present it. These other leagues want to share the wealth of the Premier League,” he added.“We got a lot of criticism about the fans. Peter Moore [chief executive of Premier League club Liverpool] says Liverpool are local but also global. I’m a Milan fan. Riccardo Silva is a Milan fan. I feel like I’m more of a Milan fan than the next guy.”“Why is it that only local people can be fans of a club? I would argue that there are a number of fans out there that are just as rabid as the local fans,” he concluded.
