The Spanish government had ordered the Spanish FA (RFEF) and other non-Olympic federations to hold elections before the summer Olympic Games, a ruling which led to FIFA president Sepp Blatter threatening Spain´s expulsion from Euro 2008.
Blatter declared in February that government interference in the administration of football in Spain could result in the national team and also Primera Liga clubs being excluded from international competition.
