La Liga threatens strike over betting cash
Spain's Socialist administration is preparing legislation on betting and the LFP, which groups the nation's professional clubs, said after a meeting in Madrid it was unhappy with the draft proposals.
"If there is no agreement, a stoppage is a possibility and at the moment nothing is ruled out," LFP secretary general Carlos del Campo was quoted as saying in local media.
In a statement, the LFP said the draft law made no mention of giving the organisers of competitions that attracted bets, such as La Liga, a share of the cash the industry generated.
In addition, there was no guarantee that the system of allocating a share of lottery revenue to football would be maintained in its current form, the statement added.
The LFP is also unhappy with a rule in Spain that says one La Liga match per weekend must be shown for free on television.
