La Liga have asked the Spanish Football Federation (RFEF) for consent to maintain Decembers match between Atletico Madrid and Villarreal at Miami.
Both clubs have agreed to this suggestion to hold the December fixture at the Miami Dolphins Hard Rock Stadium.
La Liga formerly failed in an attempt to maneuver the assembly of Barcelona with Girona.
The RFEF along with the players union (AFE) were equally vocal in objecting to this move on that occasion.
La Liga signed up to play one match a season as part of a 15-year deal with media business Relevent at 2018.
Following the providers plans were blocked by the United States Soccer Federation to host games relevent chairman Charlie Stillitano started a legal case against US football authorities in September.
La Liga president Javier Tebas explained:This game could be a further push in La Ligas internationalisation plan, which is giving all clubs good results. We feel that on this occasion, well be able to carry this out favorable opportunity for everyone, such as they already do in other leagues such as the NFL and the NBA, outside of the borders.
Atletico Madrid chief executive Miguel Angel Gil Marin added:We would have the ability to bring Spanish soccer closer to the fans and followers that live outside of the nation. It would be a wonderful sport, which would demonstrate the way to go later on.
The Spanish top flight previously filed a lawsuit with a civil court in Madrid in a bid.
That match also had the approval of Uefa, US Soccer and the Confederation of North, Central American and Caribbean Association Football (Concacaf).
