Spain refs to hold last minute meeting to avoid strike

Yesterday referees in Spain's top two division threaten to strike if they were not paid the two weeks of back wages owed to them. Spanish officials asked the refs to provide them with information regarding the amount owed and their banking information (why their employers would not have this, I don't know).

Anyway, the Referees' Committee will meet on Saturday to decide if they should except a deal put forward by the country's Professional Football League. This meeting will take place just six hours before the Barcelona-Real Madrid match.

Nothing like a nail biter.
