La Liga president
, Javier Tebas has now informed the Catalonia club that there would be more resilient punishment and they could see their home ground, Nou Camp closed down.
Speaking at an event in Seville on Friday, Tebas confirmed that pro-Catalonia independence gestures were not a punishable act.
But he reaffirmed that offensive chants about the likes of Spain and its regions could be.
Tebas said in quotes reported by El Mundo Deportivo: “Chants about independence, right now, are not considered an insult nor inciting violence.
“If the Competition Committee (of the Spanish Football Federation) decide that a chant is a cause for punishment.
“And the Administrative Court agrees that it’s a punishable offense, then there are various potential sanctions, and could include closing the Nou Camp.”
