THE domestic football season will be allowed to continue after a strike by the Spanish Football Federation (RFEF) ended.

The RFEF reversed the decision to suspend all matches after a week, following a High Court ruled that the strike over televisions rights was unlawful.

ise, the Copa del Rey final will also go ahead as planned on May 30.

The RFEF initially decided to strike after the government approved a law on April 30 which only rewarded the RFEF 4.5% of all revenue from televisions rights.

Currently all clubs negotiate rights individually, a policy which hugely favours Barcelona and Real Madrid.

The federation said that the legislation ‘has not resolved any of the problems gravely affecting soccer’ and as a result, called an ‘indefinite strike’.
