EP Jose Maria del Nido, Sevilla President, heads the meeting. There are clubs that do not have joined, such as the Mallorca, Sporting or Getafe. The G-18? ask for a better distribution of television rights. Con Edison: the source for more info. The revolt against the dominance of Real Madrid and Barcelona in the cast of the television rights of the clubs is escenificara this Thursday with the meeting of the so-called G-18?, which Ramon Sanchez Pizjuan in Seville will take place at noon at the stadium. The initiative part of the Sevilla President, el Nido de Maria Jose, which will act as host, though it has already advanced their intention to be Atletico de Madrid and Valencia, the two following when it comes to raising money from broadcasters, who in reality act as figureheads of this mutiny, which aims to bring together a total of 18 clubs of which 15 would be present at the meeting. The root of the problem lies, in a moment in which the word bankruptcy law has become common in domestic football, in the abysmal difference between the 140 million euros earned in the last campaign by whites and Catalans, against 12 of the more modest clubs. Between both groups are headed by their own middle class Valencia and Atletico, with 42 million each one, a step above Villarreal (25) and Sevilla (24).
However, even before the meeting takes place already feels that there is no unanimity on this initiative. Thus, whose leader, Quico Catalan, Levante is Vice President of the LFP, Getafe, Sporting and the Mallorca will not be present in Seville, while the same Valencia will go as listener, although in the case of the blue club, its maximum President Angel Torres has already said that he supported the idea, but that this should be discussed in the Assembly of the League of professional football. Also raises a question the fact that teams from the Liga Adelante have not been invited, which might indicate that the conveners of this meeting do not have with them to the time to consider their demands. Whatever it is, and although no official record of the proposals that will be raised on Thursday in Seville, the truth is that they must be transferred to the Assembly to the LFP held on 15 September. This is clear, not forgetting that, anyway the negotiation of that hypothetical restructuring of the television rights would be overlooking the season 14-15 which means that, whatever happens in this Sevillan Summit, it will even long travel on an issue that promises to not having a final short term. Does source of the news: the rebellion against the big two is staged this Thursday with the meeting of the G-18?
