The dates of both Clásicos with Real Madrid are among those affected / MIGUEL RUIZ-FCB

There have been a number of changes to the Liga fixture list after the Superior Council for Sports decided on Tuesday to accept a number of proposals for modified dates. The Getafe v Barça fixture, one of a number of games originally scheduled to be played midweek around October 28, and that had been brought forward to August 26, will finally be played on November 1.

The whole fixture list from that round of matches (week 10) has been delayed by one week, so the competition will now end on the weekend of May 21 and 22, a week later than originally announced.

New Clásico dates

The games affected include both of those against Real Madrid (which will now be on November 22 and April 10) and also the two derbies against Espanyol (now on January 10 and May 15).

The Copa del Rey Final has been rescheduled for May 7, the same day as the 36th round of Liga matches. The Liga games involving the two finalists (and their respective opponents) will be rescheduled to be played four days later, on May 11.

Changes for Club World Cup

FC Barcelona’s fixture list is further modified due to the team’s involvement in the Club World Cup in Japan. The 16th league match, away to Sporting, will be played on February 16/17 or February 23/24, depending on which week Barcelona are drawn to play in the Champions League round of 16, assuming they qualify.

As for the Copa del Rey, Barça will play its round of 32 matches on October 28 (first keg) and December 2 (second leg).
