Real Madrid was sued in Oman and lost

The Spanish La Liga club has been ordered to pay more than $1.19 million for playing in 2014 with their second team.

In 2014, Real Madrid and Barcelona took part in the Oman Legends Cup.

But Los Blancos did not field their best team, and now an Oman-based company has been awarded $1.19 million in damages by an Omani court.

Zan For Events And Conferences will have to receive the money from Los Merengues, after being sued in the last years.

“My stand has been vindicated against Real Madrid on their breach of contract,” said al Shabibi to the Muscat Daily.

“My company suffered huge losses as the club failed to bring in the promised stars for the Oman Legends Cup, a game involving greats of Real Madrid and FC Barcelona.”

“We have another appeal wherein we have sought compensation from Real Madrid for failing to honor a commitment of starting a Real Madrid Academy. The Legends game was held to promote and announce the setting up of the academy,” he added.

“We were to announce the launch of the ambitious Real Madrid Academy project after the Oman Legends Cup. But to our shock and disappointment, we got to know that Real Madrid had inked a deal with another party in Oman for the academy a day ahead of the match.”

“The verdict on that appeal is yet to come but we have all the documents and evidence citing the visit of top Real Madrid officials to Muscat to discuss the project,” he continued.

“We also had a press conference announcing the plans for the match and academy in the presence of officials from the Spanish Embassy.”

“We have an official letter from the Real Madrid Club with regard to the academy and the hosting of the Legends match,” he concluded.
