Spanish Football Federation Looking Over $4M Offer To Play Friendly In Doha
The Spanish Football Federation (RFEF) "is mulling an important offer" for the friendly match in February against Uruguay to be played in Doha, Qatar, according to Miguel Ángel Lara. of MARCA. The offer "is very appealing" to the federation as it has been offered approximately €3M ($3.9M) for the game to be played in the Middle East. Also, the travel would be manageable for the players as the flight from Madrid to Doha is six-and-a-half hours long. It has been "a long time" that the Middle East has tried to bring the World Cup holders to its part of the world. In the upcoming days, the RFEF "will decide if it accepts the possibility of playing in the Middle East" (MARCA, 11/27).
