The single most watched and most expensive game in the world, El Clasico will not be televised live for UK audiences, no thanks to a new regulation by La Liga. The kick off time of the first clasico of the season which has been put at 3:15pm on Saturday, December 3rd, 2016 has clashed with Premier League. The match would be watched all around the world except Britain.

A rule agreed upon by the FA, Premier League and Football League, prohibits football from being televised live between 2:45pm and 5:15pm on a Saturday anywhere in the United Kingdom.
"With these kick-off times we have more than doubled income," La Liga president Javier Tebas revealed

According to, “La Liga's recent penchant for scheduling Madrid or Barca games during England's 3pm window is part of a concerted global development drive that is also intended to eat into the Premier League's worldwide audience.”
