The Spanish High Court and the Spanish Federation of Football cancelled the players' strike that threatened to paralyze football competitions in the next two weeks
This Thursday morning the Spanish High Court cancelled the footballers' strike that threatened to paralyze soccer competitions in the next two weeks. The Spanish Footballers Association (AFE) together with the Spanish Federation of Football (RFEF) were complaining after the proposed introduction of a new TV rights law. However the High Court ruled that proposed strike is illegal, so the final two La Liga rounds will be played and this mean that FC Barcelona will be able to win the championship this Sunday if they win Atlético Madrid —7pm CEST.
After the decision, the RFEF immediately lifted suspension of all the competitions for the next two weekends.
The Copa del Rey final will also will be played as planned on May 30; Barça will face Athletic Club Bilbao at Camp Nou.
