Spain's soccer federation has rejected La Liga's request to play Barcelona's game against Girona in Miami on Jan. 26, a federation source told Reuters on Friday.

"A letter was sent to La Liga this morning in which it denies the game request because it does not comply with the international rules", said a source from the federation.

According to world governing body FIFA's statutes, any domestic competition played outside the league's usual home must be approved by the home federation, the European governing body UEFA, the federation where the game is taking place, and the regional confederation - in this case the United States Soccer Federation and CONCACAF.
