Spanish football league La Liga has decided to alter the kick-off time of one match every Saturday in order to cater to ‘accommodate’ audiences in the United Kingdom.

La Liga president Javier Tebas said that the decision has been taken in order to adhere to the UK broadcasting law.

Ther British law does not allow games to be shown on television from 2.45pm until 5.15pm, reported The Guardian.

In 2013, viewers in the UK reportedly missed the first 15 minutes of the highly anticipated Real Madrid- Barcelona clash due to this law.
