La Liga, which runs the top two divisions of Spanish football, believes it can close the gap in revenues between it and the English Premier League in the next 10 years with an ambitious plan to expand its international audience.Javier Tebas, La Liga's president, said the Premier League earned about 40 percent more than the Spanish league, which draws in some 1.7 billion euros ($2 billion) a year in television rights.Tebas said La Liga's biggest advantage relative to the Premier League was the quality of its clubs and players.La Liga was also looking into the possibility of playing one or two of its 380 matches per season outside Spain, noting the success of a preseason Barcelona-Real Madrid game in Miami in July.
