Madrid Court Orders RFEF To Return Land To Madrid Community Las Rozas

Madrid's Superior Justice Tribunal (TSJM) has ordered that the Spanish Football Federation (RFEF) return the 115,000 square meter-surface area occupied by "Football City" to Madrid municipality Las Rozas, according to F. Javier Barroso of EL PAIS. This demand "ends a long judicial process" that could mean €45M ($59M) in revenue for Las Rozas. The RFEF acquired the site of "Football City" in '03, which includes the Spanish national team's facilities and a museum dedicated to La Roja. The TSJM order gives the RFEF 60 days to turn over the land, "with the organization subject to a fine" of €300 ($390) per day for every day following the 60-day period if the land is not returned to Las Rozas (EL PAIS, 7/17).
