Barcelona To Be Allowed Into Champions League After UEFA Investigation Clears Negreira Case

Barcelona are set to be cleared of attempting to influence referees by Union of European Football Associations (UEFA), following an investigation brought on by the Negreira case.

Barcelona will not face a sanction from UEFA, a decision which was communicated to the club on Friday, June 30.

The investigation followed the back of documents found showing payments from Barcelona to former Vice-President of the Referees Committee, Jose Maria Enriquez Negreira, amounting to around €7 million for over 17 years.

It is currently in the Spanish judicial system under the accusation of continuous corruption.

UEFA charged two lawyers to investigate the information available, who after looking at the material available sent Barcelona a document with 70 questions to be answered on the matter.
