The holder of the Commercial Court No. 2 of Madrid has completely rejected the lawsuit filed on July 12, 2019 by LaLiga against the Spanish Football Federation (RFEF) for disloyalty and prohibited conduct by preventing it from playing League matches on Fridays and Mondays.
Act at 14:58
The judge rejects that there has been unfair competition or prohibited conduct in the institution presided over by Luis Rubiales and agrees that LaLiga and the RFEF must agree to the possible celebration of football matches on Fridays and Mondays, as stated in the current Coordination Agreement signed by both.
NEGOTIATE ” IN GOOD FAITH ” THE NEW CALENDAR
Judge Andrés Sánchez Magro summons the parties to negotiate in good faith the league calendar, since the Coordination Agreement in force signed between both institutions last summer, contrary to what happened in the preceding, does not contain any precision on the possible dispute of matches outside the official day, so if LaLiga wishes to play matches outside the days of the official matchday (Sunday / Saturday) it must necessarily reach an agreement with the RFEF.
ANDhe trial for LaLiga’s complaint was held on February 20 and 21 after LaLiga took the case to court due to the RFEF decision to delete the meetings on Friday and Monday from the calendar. LaLiga then requested precautionary measures, which the judge considered in part and authorized that matches be played on Fridays but not on Mondays.
