Athletic Bilbao and Real Sociedad could play a friendly in the USA. 'Los Leones' want to try and convince Sociedad to play a Basque derby in North America.

Athletic Bilbao have got an agreement to return to he United States in pre-season, 'Marca' are reporting. Athletic Bilbao want to play one or two friendlies in Boise, Idaho.

Their intention is to play against Real Sociedad. The game would be played during the Jaialdi Basque festival in Idaho in 2020 which sees Basques come to the US city. 

Athletic received the Idado state governor with the aim of building a relationship for Jaialdi 2020. So, they just need an opponent to play the games with. 

They are already looking towards the 2020-21 pre-season when the 2019-20 season has just begun. Time is pressing to organise a historic Basque derby.
