Basques and Catalan fined for booing Spanish national anthem

Spain’s anti-violence commission has fined Barcelona €66,000 (£47,000) after the Catalan club’s fans booed the national anthem before the Copa del Rey final in May.

According to Marca, Athletic Bilbao, Barcelona’s opponents in the final, were also fined €18,000 for their fans’ part in the booing while the Spanish Football Federation was fined €123,00.

The game, which took place at the Camp Nou, was won 3-1 by Luis Enrique’s side, a win that sealed their domestic double in Enrique’s first season in charge of the club.

The news of Barcelona’s fine comes days after Uefa fined Barcelona €30,000 after the club’s supporters displayed pro-Catalan independence flags at the Champions League final in Berlin.
