In a ceremony held in Seoul, LaLiga received the award from Kwon Oh-Gap, K League’s president, who valued the contribution of the Spanish championship to the development of the South Korean league. Speaking about the award, a spokesperson of the K League said: “we would like to express our sincere thanks and appreciation to LaLiga.
