The Spanish judicial system has put off, for 24 hours, a decision on whether the Liga games for the upcoming weekend will take place or not. A decision is now expected from Purificación Pujol, the judge in charge of the case [not kidding!], by 10 am Spanish time on Wednesday morning.
If the judge rules that the strike cannot go forward, then Barcelona’s match against Villarreal has been officially scheduled for Saturday at 10pm in El Madrigal stadium. If the strike does proceed as planned, the weekend’s games will likely be played in mid-June.
The issue at hand centers over a dispute over the terms of television broadcasts of league games between the Spanish league [LFP] and the Spanish government. Click here to read our previous coverage of the strike.
