🇰🇪 Kenya among four countries chosen for special El Clasico edition

Kenya is among the four countries selected worldwide to be part of a LaLiga global campaign ahead of this weekend's El Clasico.

The country joins Germany, Indonesia, and Uzbekistan in the special group, with a number of activities set to unfold ahead of Saturday's match.

As part of the campaign, LaLiga travelled to Sekenani, on the outskirts of the Maasai Mara National Reserve, and installed a lounge and raised an El Clasico flag in the middle of a Maasai Boma, giving the locals the chance to be part of the larger campaign. 

LaLiga further helped with basic food for 80 families in the Maasai community.

To further symbolise LaLiga's global reach, it has installed 17 ElClásico flags in the most unpredictable places in order to surprise football-lovers in countries such as Egypt, Israel, Morocco, Angola, Mauritius, Nicaragua, Indonesia, Brazil, Bolivia, Turkey, Malaysia, Ecuador, Japan, Thailand, Denmark, the United States, and Canada.

The stars of ElClásico

The return ElClásico fixture is set to be one of the most exciting clashes in recent seasons – a face-off between two huge clubs and a real six-pointer when it comes to the LaLiga title race.

The game will also feature a very special match ball, as LaLiga and PUMA will screen-print 'ElClásico abril 2021' onto the Adrenalina football for the occasion. The ball’s technical specifications will be the same, but it will include the date stamp for the very first time.

As always, the biggest stars in world football will be on display in front of millions of fans around the globe.

Stars such as Lionel Messi, the top scorer in the history of ElClásico and six-time winner of the Ballon d'Or, will take centre stage alongside international heavyweights such as Luka Modric, Karim Benzema, Antoine Griezmann, Frenkie de Jong and Thibaut Courtois.

However, one of the most familiar faces will be missing, given that Sergio Ramos – the man who has played the most ElClásico games ever – has been ruled out with a calf injury
