LFP has made a new rule to regulate the TV broadcasters. The Spanish league will fine the clubs that show empty stands on the TV.

This new rule will have an influence to the next season. The stands that appear on TV will have to be full-filled in a 75% at least. If not, the clubs will be fined. "If the occupation is lower than a 50%, there will be double punishment".

LFP recommends to move the fans from the stands behind the goal to the stands opposite the TV cameras. This rule will only be suspended in games with bad weather.

The fans complain about the schedules

Loads of people are not happy with that rule. There are a lot of complains in the social media regarding to the innappropiate hours of the games. The complains are focused on the Sunday night and the Monday night games.
