Catalan referendum could see Barça-Las Palmas postponed
Mundo Deportivo says Sunday's planned vote may see the Camp Nou clash rearranged due to a lack of available law-enforcement officers.
Barcelona's LaLiga clash with Las Palmas on Sunday could be at risk of postponement due to the Catalan independence referendum scheduled for the same day, despite Blaugrana vice-president Jordi Cardoner on Wednesday claiming the match will go ahead without any difficulties.
According to Mundo Deportivo, the controversial vote - which Catalonia's regional government has insisted will go ahead in the face of the Spanish government's efforts to stop it - could lead the week 7 match at the Camp Nou to be rearranged due to a lack of available law-enforcement personnel for the fixture.
Postponement of LaLiga clash to be discussed today
Ahead of the planned 1 October referendum, Catalan regional premier Carles Puigdemont has called a meeting of the Generalitat's security board at 12:00 CEST today, where the possible police deployment for Barça-Eibar, and whether the game can be played, will be discussed.
