The Premier League in Asia is a Much Tougher Prospect



Spanish teams might have been knocking English teams from Europe this season but hard the Premier League in Asia is a much tougher prospect.  La Liga has talked of making inroads and, like a Rocky Balboa, it's prepared to do whatever it takes to knock on the grizzled No 1. Regardless of the PR overdrive, it will be tough to get a league that's always appealed more in the Americas compared to Asia but, with diverse strategies that don't rely upon the tired route?one approach of sending glamour teams east every other summer, La Liga's strategy is almost tiki-taka?esque. The possibility of competitive matches, unprecedented loan prices, real partnerships, corporate prices, extensive social networking engagement in addition to the apparent attractions of Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo, constitute a cell challenger that needs to be taken seriously.

The notion of "Game 39" has been savaged a decade ago when increased by the Premier League but it's currently on the Madrid table. "La Liga is international entertainment and we would like to grow the worldwide appeal," the president, Javier Tebas, said in September. "As part of the effort, we're discussing the option of playing the league games out of Spain." That's nothing.  In January nine players were sent on loan in Spain. La Liga is eager to increase its popularity in the continent and the nation although fans there might not enjoy it.  Individual clubs shortly announced sponsorship deals with companies that were Saudi. After poorly received Asian excursions, such as Real Madrid to China in 2005 and Barcelona's trip to South Korea five decades later, teams that behaved as if they had been doing fans a favor, there's now a new breed of La Liga official. agen judi bola

They're more humble and more ready to treat counterparts in England on an equal footing than their predecessors in Spain and a number of their counterparts.  Soccer people in China and south?east Asia whisper these officials have the energy and ambition that the English hadn't long ago. 
La Liga is studying and so is Asia.  Ben Tan, the deputy chief executive of the Thai League, says: "We all know there have been issues in the past with one-sided agreements but we are prepared to work together and make a win-win circumstance."  This month the Thai League is to announce a partnership and Malaysia did something similar.  Tan adds: "We'll work together on childhood development and promotion and all sorts of fields. "Real Madrid and Barcelona do not need any advertising but we could work with groups such as Real Zaragoza, for instance.  The Premier League could be the most entertaining league but there's room for Asian lovers to look at other leagues."



Barça and Madrid are possibly the two biggest clubs in the world but are seen nearly as different from La Liga itself.   Football is aggressive and there are clubs for fans but just two in Spain.  If you would like Chinese fans to watch more matches, then there must be more than just two clásicos every season."
Few would deny that the quality on the pitch is higher in Spain but that's not the prime factor it off.   Little difference was made by Atlético being possessed until February. Spain must attempt to cancel out specific in-built advantages that the Premier League has.  England colonized areas of that link and the continent exists.   Liverpool might not have won the league since 1990 but their 70s and 80s victories provided a foundation for continued widespread support, particularly in south?east Asia.  Ironically Spain's only colony of any dimension the Philippines, in the area, is.

Very few journalists speak Spanish.  All will have the ability to read and comprehend rumors English Premier League reports and comments and to replicate them.  Much of the soccer news in Asia comes via London rather than Madrid. Nations with few historical links to England such as South Korea and Japan have grown to understand the Premier League nicely by sending some of the best players there.  The club was not only helped by Park Ji-sung winning medals it made all of the other teams in the league marketable and more comfortable. What Spain can do - as well as the UK's tough work permit laws provide an edge here - is position their clubs are the first destination for its future gift that will eventually emerge in China, India and south?east Asia.  The benefits of being home to the soccer superstar that is Chinese would be the stuff of dreams for suits in Spain.   says Bi.  "It would give La Liga a real increase in China."
