La Liga players could take strike action over a deal to hold Spanish top-flight matches overseas for the first time.
Last week, La Liga announced it was partnering with sports and entertainment company Relevent for a 15-year deal pitting two top Spanish teams together in the United States once a season.
It would represent the first time a La Liga match would be played overseas and players are not ready to accept the terms of the agreement.
Stars including Real Madrid captain Sergio Ramos and Barcelona midfielder Sergio Busquets were reportedly present as the Spanish Footballers’ Association (AFE) met on Wednesday to discuss the proposals.
“The players are outraged, very surprised, and are all against it. It’s unanimous,” said AFE president David Aganzo.
“The players don’t want to play overseas. Things have to be done in a more coherent way and with common sense.
“A decision of this magnitude, that affects players, referees and fans, was taken unilaterally and is a lack of respect.
“I have information that there are certain clubs that are in favour [of strike action] and others against this, but I represent the players.”
