E The Government, after the fruitful meeting between CSD, RFEF and LaLiga, has modified the Royal Decree of the Soccer, increasing the percentages that LaLiga will contribute to both non-professional soccer ( will go from 1 to 2% ) and to the rest of the federations ( from 0.5 to 1.5% ).
In this way, professional football will become the driving force of Spanish sport at a time when the state budget will inevitably be affected by the terrible crisis that we are experiencing.
Specifically, LaLiga will have to contribute in two possible ways, which are: either reducing the amount of aid that is earmarked for descent (hardly feasible) or, the other, is to increase from 1 to 2% the total amount of the television money that will reach the Federation for non-professional football. That is: doubling their income.
In addition, instead of the 0.5% that was already destined for the Higher Sports Council, that amount will triple to 1.5%, and It will go to federated, Olympic and Paralympic sports, and to the internationalization of sport.
To manage this money, a new foundation will be created where, in its governing bodies, LaLiga would be located , the Football Federation and other federations to manage what, right now, suffers from lack of management.
With these agreements, LaLiga will then be the engine of Spanish sport thanks to the income from television, while everyone is guaranteed to row in the same direction to get it finished in the championships and the soccer industry which represents 1.37% of the GDP, is as little affected as possible.
These are the news that will include the Royal Decree:
Reducing from 3.5% to 2.5% the amount destined to the Compensation Fund from which sports entities that, competing in professional football competition may descend from category.
o Raising to 2% the amount foreseen as a solidarity contribution to the development of amateur football, to federal structures and to the improvement of the competitiveness of non-professional categories through a change of their structure.
* As a novelty, additionally allocating 1.5% to the Higher Sports Council in order to promote federated, Olympic and Paralympic sports, and the internationalization of sport. The amount received would be managed by a foundation attached to the CSD and chaired by the SE for Sport. The RFEF, LaLiga and representatives of other sports federations and competitions would join the board of trustees and the Director General would be appointed by the CSD. It will be able to receive private and state funds, and its function would be to identify the priorities in the field of federated sport, design projects for the dissemination and national and international promotion of the Spanish sport model, and carry out the management and justification of the funds received. This foundation would be in charge of managing and marketing the audiovisual rights of the rest of the FFDD and competitions other than soccer, who do not wish to manage them by themselves.
