Barcelona filed a brief last Friday in the Court 15 of First Instance of Madrid in which it communicated its withdrawal of the lawsuit, of which it was part along with Real Madrid and Athletic Bilbao, against LaLiga and CVC. The three clubs, with the Spanish Football Federation as co-plaintiff, had denounced the economic alliance between the employer and the investment fund called LaLiga impulso, by which the rest of the professional clubs received about 1,900 million euros in exchange for 8% of their profits in the commercialization of their television rights. In its letter of withdrawal, the Blaugrana entity requested for its part the dismissal of the case without affecting the continuity in it of Real Madrid, Athletic and the federative entity.
Barcelona's resignation occurred on the same Friday in which a Court of First Instance, in this case the 46th, also issued a sentence in which it states that there was a formal defect in the conditions of the call and in the adoption of the agreement of the LaLiga Assembly of August 12, 2021. The employers, in a statement, said that this sentence "does not question the conformity to law of the LaLiga Impulso Project" and that "any possible defect of prominent form in this demand was already fully corrected in the Assembly of December 10, 2021 where the final agreement with CVC was approved. "
LaLiga, in addition, corroborates that the agreement with CVC has not been affected by assuring that the next payment of 500 million euros that the fund must contribute will be executed in the coming days.
