Spanish FA deducted points from Levante, Real Sociedad and Villarreal

Spanish FA deducted points from Levante, Real Sociedad and Villarreal for not wearing the league logo on their jerseys.

The decision has caused a lot of controversy. The Spanish regulations require the logo to be worn in non-professional competitions. Ironically, Liga Iberdrola was classified as a professional league on 15th of June. Despite that, Levante UD, Real Sociedad and Villarreal had three points deducted from their tally. Consequently, Sociedad are now already 9 points behind leading Barcelona.

The three clubs released a joint statement, saying that “the sanction that the RFEF intends to impose affects the integrity of the competition. It has no legal basis, as the RFEF regulations only require the logo to be worn in non-professional competitions”. They consider their fines to be “absolutely disproportionate”. Apart from that, they believe the decision is “totally unfair and against the law and an unprecedented direct attack against women’s football.”

The Association of Women Football Clubs (ACFF) will host a press conference tomorrow. A possibility of the strike is on the table in order to draw attention of Liga Iberdrola professionalization that is yet to happen.
