The Catalan club released a short statement on Tuesday providing an update
The RFEF dismissed Barça’s arguments and excluded them from the Copa de la Reina on Tuesday fielding an ineligible lineup and the Catalan club have now responded.
Barça have confirmed that they will present an appeal to the Appeals Committee to try to avoid elimination from the competition.
“FC Barcelona announces that the Club is to continue to fight for the Women’s team’s rights after they were sanctioned by the Competition Committee for fielding an ineligible line-up, with an appeal to be presented in due course.
“Should the sanction not be revoked on appeal, FC Barcelona will take every possible action, as it is considered that the line-up ended up being deemed ineligible due to technicalities in this case.”
ARGUMENT LAST MONDAY
Barça presented their argument last Monday but the resolution was postponed. The Competition judge sent various questions about the claims written by Barça and Osasuna, and called a meeting with the managers last Friday.
On Tuesday, they were kicked out of the Copa de la Reina for fielding Geyse in their 9-0 last 16 win over Osasuna.
