Court rules against football players strike but issues remain

A potential football players' strike in Spain appears to have been prevented after a court ruled against it. The High Court's decision means the remainder of the season can now go ahead. But as CCTV's Dan Williams reported, key issues remain.

Highlights:

  • The players union is calling for a fairer distribution of TV revenue and are unhappy with a new law mandating collective bargaining.
  • The court’s ruling means that on Sunday, Barcelona will be allowed to visit Atletico Madrid.
  • Unless the key issues are fully addressed by all parties, the likelihood of a return to court further down the line remains a very real possibility.
