Santander League 2018-19TOThe regulatory agreement between both 'expires' and renew it seems impossible
ANDn the Federation they have been delegating powers in favor of LaLiga through the signing of a coordination agreement. The one that is in force right now,expires on June 30and its renewal, today, seems impossible without first going through a great judicial conflict.
In Villar's time, the RFEF -whether it was due to incompetence or to avoid any kind of control in their accounts-, give LaLiga powers such as scheduling schedules, marketing the First and Second names, choosing the ball … much more
Now, with Rubiales, the Federation does not seem willing to delegate so much. At least, not at the same price. Yesterday the Superior Council of Sports gotdodge a request from LaLigain which he asked them to pronounce on who has the exact competence in these points. He did not inadmitting the request from Thebes and referring to the agreement that is still in force (from 2014 until June 30). He invited, in return, RFEF and LaLiga to sit down and negotiate to renew it because, if they do not succeed, the conflict will be mayscule. And lose football.
The Federation, shortly after, formalized its negotiating position by calling LaLiga to discuss the new agreement with an appointment on March 27 in Las Rozas. They understand that the inadmissibility of the CSD to the proposal of LaLiga supports their coincidence in this argument: "What the League really intends is for the CSD to issue a resolution formulating a general declaration that certain powers correspond to it, "and that it does so" preventively ".
For his part, the president of LaLiga, Javier Tebas, the last time he spoke on the subject, said: "They can not recover what is not theirs, this threat has been on the table for 14 years. with its president because he does not come to meetings.Only once, in which I held out my hand, but to catch something that does not belong"
And there is the problem, especially with the schedules.LaLiga maintains that the Decree selling TV rights gives it the powerto place the schedules.The RFEF denied itto. Those of 2019, in fact, are already sold and operators can intervene in the election of these schedules. If the RFEF changes them, it will be necessary to see who is responsible for the corresponding compensation.
Another option is that both institutionsoperate without regulatory agreement. This scenario seems feasible, at least until the corresponding courts make it clear which competencies correspond to each one. We are facing some very tense months of hard negotiations in our football.
LaLiga hold an Assembly on March 29 to make a balance with the clubs on the first year of the VAR and assess possible changes, among which are: possibility of including it in the future agreement with the RFEF (now there is a specific one only for the VAR ) and jointly study which technical means, payments and sponsors are applied in the VAR of 20-21.
