Madrid: Spanish authorities on Monday moved to fine Barcelona 66,000 euros and Athletic Bilbao 18,000 euros over last season's Cup final where fans of both teams whistled at Spain's King Felipe VI.
The state Higher Sports Council proposed the sanctions for "behaviour whose aim was to transform the sporting event into a stage for political demands through intolerant acts."
These included "whistling the national anthem and His Majesty the King," said the council, that also proposed a 123,000-euro fine for the Spanish Football Federation as organiser of the final played at the Nou Camp on May 30.
