    Hi, I study law at Jagiellonian University in Poland, i am writing an article for the publication about the sport law. My topic is the differences between financing clubs from TV rights selling. The la liga example is very important for me, because of the fact that their regulation is different than these in Germany or England. Unfortunately, i can't find the legal basis of this regulation in spanish websites.
    If you can help me, please contact me.

    Best regards
