Pressure on Catalan Football Federation to adhere to declaration of independence

sporting) world isn’t exempt from that with LaLiga potentially being in danger of being unable to finish.

The sporting federations in the region have a difficult situation on the table, with great consequences for many.
The Generalitat’s Secretary of State for Sport has asked them to join in the unilateral declaration of independence from Spain and president Andreu Subies is in the tough position of contemplating his department’s adherence to the declaration of independence.
If that happens, it would mean both the Spanish FA (RFEF) and LaLiga could have to suspend matches in which the five professional Catalan clubs (and Barcelona B) compete until there are guarantees that they are not breaching any sporting law by competing in them.
This law only includes Spanish and Andorran clubs and if Subies declares the federation as being separate to Spain, it would mean that fixtures would be outside the law, and the simplest measure would simply be to suspend all of those games until positions are clarified.
In a World Cup year, finding time to fulfil those fixtures at a later date would appear to be an almost impossible mission.
