Athletic Bilbao's Construction Of Its San Mamés Stadium Not Being Investigated In La Liga Probe

The European Commission, which announced that it is "launching an in-depth probe into allegations that Spanish teams unfairly enjoyed government assistance," said that it has not opened an investigation into "Athletic Bilbao's construction of its San Mamés stadium," according to Javier Gallego of EL MUNDO. In "this way, the Commission has left out of its formal investigation the case of the construction of Athletic's stadium." Spanish Foreign Minister Jose Manuel Garcia-Margallo "had said on Monday that this case was going to be formally investigated by the Commission" (EL MUNDO, 12/18).
