A source confirmed that Tebas has convened the presidents of La Liga and La Liga clubs and will hold a special meeting on October 27. It is understood that Tebas will call for the complete suspension of La Liga and La Liga at the meeting to protest the sports law drafted by the Spanish government.
Other sources suggested that Tebas’ call for clubs to strike was putting pressure on the government after the amendments he spearheaded were withdrawn by the ruling PSOE. Tebas and many opponents believe that PSOE favors Real Madrid president Florentino while ignoring the opinions of most clubs. “Sports laws were made by Florentino Perez,” the opponent said. “They value the opinion of that club more than the other 41 clubs.”
The Spanish government has recently legislated for sports and industry, and the largest local opposition party, the PP, has proposed seven amendments on behalf of the Spanish Professional Football League. It is reported that the amendment requires that 1) the centralized copyright sales model of the Spanish league be guaranteed by law, 2) to express its attitude toward the possible establishment of the European Super League, and 3) to limit the influence of the Football Association on professional leagues.
Western media learned that the ruling party initially agreed to adopt the amendment proposed by the coalition, but unexpectedly withdrew it a week later. Sources said that pressure from Real Madrid president Florentino was the main reason for the amendment to be returned.
Tebas met with the presidents of La Liga clubs on Monday with the Spanish Ministry of Culture and Sports, Mikel Essetta, to express his concerns about some of the content of sports law.
