The Spanish Football Association has ruled out that La Liga games cannot be played on Friday or Mondays without its approval.

The fight between the Royal Spanish Football Federation (RFEF) and the La Liga tournament continues.

The RFEF has ruled out the Spanish competition cannot play games on Fridays or Monday without its approval.

“Spanish football fans do not want games on these days,” the RFEF said according to the BBC.

“Especially on Mondays, it is very difficult for fans to enjoy games.”

The season opener on Friday, August 16 was set to be played between Athletic Bilbao and current champions Barceloma but the RFEF has reschedule the fixture.

“With this illegal conduct RFEF officials are generating confusion in the national and international broadcast space, which accounts for 2 billion euros in annual rights income for La Liga,” said La Liga president Javier Tebas.

“These officials have no idea of the consequences of their irresponsible acts.”

“This has no purpose, nothing will change, this only creates confusion,” he added.

“Which is the only thing they know how to do.”

“Setting the schedules is a competency of the League, while the days are of the RFEF,” the RFEF concluded.
