Real & Barca Propose New Date For El Clasico

After the first El Clasico of the season was postponed, Real Madrid and FC Barcelona have now proposed a new date for the encounter at Camp Nou.
It was confirmed on Friday that the El Clasico scheduled for next week Saturday has been postponed due to security reasons after the
unrest in Barcelona.
While Los Blancos proposed 18 December as a new date in a short statement, the Catalan giants agreed with the date and released a statement about the security situation at Camp Nou.
The statement read:
In the light of the postponement of the game against Real Madrid, decreed by the Spanish Football Federation’s (RFEF) Competition Committee, FC Barcelona states:
- On Thursday the Club informed the Spanish Football Federation’s (RFEF) Competition Committee of its decision to say no to playing the game at the Santiago Bernabéu Stadium, as proposed by the Spanish Football League (LFP).
- The Club’s desire was to play the Clásico at Camp Nou on the 26th, the date and time previously agreed and the Committee was informed of this in writing. 
- The Club has the utmost confidence in the civic and pacific attitude of its members and fans who always express themselves in exemplary fashion at Camp Nou.
- Nevertheless, having received the decision of the RFEF Competition Committee to postpone the game citing "exceptional circumstances” and given that it falls to the clubs to agree a new date for the game before Monday, the Club will propose 18 December.
- The Club regrets the inconvenience that this postponement may cause to members, supporters’ club members and fans and it has now begun the necessary steps to refund money from Monday 21 October for tickets already purchased.
