Spain is in shock after all the country's football games may not go ahead after May 16. This affects the final, championship-deciding rounds of matches in La Liga. This is because of a dispute between the Spanish football federation and TV companies over money. The suspension could affect 600,000 football players and 30,000 matches. Barcelona currently lead rivals Real Madrid by just two points, with three games left. There is still time for a deal.

The Spanish government wants all teams to bargain together over TV money. Currently, nearly half of all money goes to Barcelona and Real Madrid because they can negotiate their own deals. The Spanish federation said the government lacked respect for interfering in football. It said it was not included in talks on the new TV rights law. In another twist, players have threatened to strike for not being part of the talks.
