Barcelona and Espanyol are two La Liga clubs that arelocated in the Catalonian region of Spain This has placed them on the doubting edge as whether the two clubs would still be enlisted among la Liga clubs as the Catalian are now set to stand as a sovereign and independent state come November 9.

While speaking with Spanish Radio, President of Liga de Futbol Profesional (LFP) Tebas said a ‘yes’ vote flag up these two clubs; Barcelona and Espanyol, as illegal to play in Spanish league.

According to Tebas”Barcelona and Espanyol would not play in the Spanish League if Catalonia becomes independent for the following reason: the Sports Act has an additional provision that only one non-Spanish state can play in La Liga or official Spanish competitions, and that is Andorra,”

He however said that consultation is still on-going to see if there would be a constitutional option that would make provision for the exclusion of this clubs so as to sustain Spanish league that will feature Barcelona and Espanyol.
