The Madrid derby will be shown live in Cape Town on a giant screen

LaLiga to host the first official viewing event in South Africa.

LaLiga brings a Spanish football flavour to Cape Town for their first official screening event on Saturday 27 February. The gates open at 1:00 pm and it will be free for everyone to attend. Although it will feature clinics for kids and educational workshops, interactive games and activities, the main attraction will be a massive screen to watch the game between Real Madrid and Atletico Madrid, which kicks off at 5:00 pm (local time). In addition, a draw to win a trip to Spain will take place during the day.  

Javier Tebas, president of LaLiga, has already confirmed his presence together with two Liga BBVA ambassadors; former Spanish International and Valencia midfielder, Gaizka Mendieta, and Patrick Kluivert, the former Dutch International and Barcelona striker. Also watching and cheering along with them will be local ambassador and former Bafana Bafana star Stanton 'Stiga' Fredericks, as well as a host of other local football heroes and sporting legends.

"We have just launched LaLiga in South Africa with a view to expansion into the rest of Africa. We're so excited to get a chance to watch such an important LaLiga game with our fans in Cape Town, especially considering we'll be watching with some of our international legends and passionate Spanish soccer fans from South Africa," says LaLiga President Javier Tebas.
