Official FC Barcelona announcement in response to 'estelada' flag sanction
The Club shall be appealing against the decision and shall take all available legal measures until the sanction is revoked
FC Barcelona announces that has received notice this afternoon of the sanction imposed by the UEFA Disciplinary Committee due to the display of ‘estelada’ flags at the Camp Nou at Champions League matches in the 2015/2016 season.
The fine is for 150,000 euros, although 50,000 euros shall be suspended if the events are not repeated in the next two years.
The Club shall be appealing against this sanction, and shall be taking all legal measures in order for the same to be revoked, for it considers it to be totally unjust and to be opposed to the exercise of the freedom of expression.
