After the referendum on the independence of Catalonia football clubs, for example “Barcelona”, “Espanyol” and “Girona” will decide which of the European Championships to speak, said the Minister of sport of the region Gerard Figueres.

The government of Catalonia is going to hold the 1st of October, the referendum on independence, which does not recognize the Spanish government. Spain’s constitutional court suspended all documents regarding the vote taken by Generalitat and the Catalan Parliament. Thus, the court declared all further actions of the Catalan authorities on the preparation of the referendum illegal.

“It is unknown what will become of the professional clubs, in particular Barcelona. In the case of independence of the Catalan clubs playing in the Spanish League, will have to decide where they want to play in the Spanish League or in the championship of neighbouring countries, such as Italy, France or England. As soon as the clubs come to a decision, negotiations will begin with the federations to organize their interventions in the selected championship,” said Figueres in an interview with Gazetta dello Sport.

According to polls, the independence of Catalonia supports 41% of the population of the Autonomous community, 49% oppose. For a referendum on the status of the Autonomous community are 80% of Catalans, but most of them believe that voting should be coordinated with the Central authorities in Madrid, drew attention to the “R-Sport”.
