Girona got promoted for the first time to Primera and then Catalonia happens. :P Still, it will make El Clasico a European tie rather than a league one. More special because it will be less frequent? www.fcf.cat is the webpage of the Federacio Catalana de Futbol. They have their own "national" team that usually plays a single Christmas-New Year match; but with what's happening now? You could have the odd situation whereby Catalan players who are legally cap-tied to Spain end up being called for the October qualifiers after the region declares independence 48hrs after the referendum ballot on Sunday, 1 October (if it passes - probably will - but the legal shaky-ness of the context leads to the next problem - international recognition). One thing's for sure, Catalonia will make their own league (if/when) they become independent.
