In light of Catalonia declaring independence from Spain, the mayor of Girona, Marta Madrenas, has confirmed that the LaLiga game between Real Madrid and Girona will go ahead as planned. The president of the club,  Delfí Geli, has also backed those statements.

The club believe Real Madrid can travel to Girona with no trouble and there is no need to cancel or postpone the game. They will also put security measures in place to ensure fans and players are safe.

Madrenas was the first to convey a message of calm. She went on television and declared, "In Girona, we are, like all of Catalonia, civic and responsible people. There is absolutely no reason to fear there will be any problem. We are civilised people."

The president of the club has also said that, "We are preparing for the game to be played. It will be played as normal and it will be a footballing party," he said. "The people are waiting for the visit of Madrid and they want to enjoy Girona in the top flight. A great opponent is coming to our stadium, one of the best clubs in the world and all that everyone wants is to see Girona play Madrid. It will be an experience for our fans to live in Montilivi."
