Sevilla FC official statement

THE NATIONAL SPORTS COUNCIL (CSD) POSTPONES SEVILLA FC - FC BARCELONA SCHEDULED FOR SATURDAY

The match will need to be rescheduled for another date meaning that the next game will now be against RB Salzburg in the Champions League on Tuesday at 18:45.

The National Sports Council (CSD) has today confirmed that it has accepted LaLiga's request to postpone the match between Sevilla FC and FC Barcelona which was due to be played on Saturday at the Sánchez-Pizjuán. The Royal Spanish Football Federation (RFEF) is able to appeal should it wish to do so. 

In view of the situation, Sevilla FC wishes to inform that the season ticket registration for the game has been suspended pending a new date for the game. The registration to attend the first game in the UEFA Champions League group stage against RB Salzburg will take place this Friday. 

LaLiga had asked the CSD to postpone the match due to the fact that South American players for both sides would not be in contention to play as they would only be arriving back from international duty a few hours before the game. The Royal Spanish Football Federation's Competition Committee had previously refused to postpone the match, but the decision has been overturned by the National Sports Council (CSD).
