Forbidden to play local games outside its borders

In August 2018 LaLiga (who is the organizer of the top football in Spain) has signed a controversial deal with Relevent sports that one duel from the championship should be played abroad in the next 15 years. The first game scheduled to begin at 27 January 2019 between Girona - Barcelona in Miami (United States of America) was stopped in time by the Spanish football association (RFEF), and with absolute right eight days ago the organizers were denied again from the Commercial court in Madrid which rejected their appeal. Same happened with Villarreal - Atletico Madrid, which supposed to be played in the same city on 06 December 2019.
With this decision the mentioned court prohibits the teams to play overseas games in the future, unless both sides (RFEF and LaLiga) agree on the matter. On a three year partnership the Super Cup will be staged in Saudi Arabia (signed with RFEF), which prompted LaLiga to appeal versus the cancellation decision. Against playing the local championship outside its borders are both the world football organization and the Spanish union of players. Because the above appeal is never enough, now the (losing) unsatisfied organizers (in a greed for more profit) will go to the Provincial court in Madrid.
