Spain to use 'all legal means' to block Gibraltar's UEFA membership

LINK
quote:


Spain will "exhaust all legal means" to prevent the tiny British territory of Gibraltar gaining full membership of UEFA, Sports Minister Jose Ignacio Wert said on Tuesday.
Gibraltar was admitted as a provisional member of European soccer's governing body on Monday and a decision on whether to grant full membership will be taken at a UEFA Congress in London next May.
Wert, whose portfolio also includes education and culture, said Gibraltar's provisional membership meant it could not yet take part in UEFA competition and said his ministry and the foreign ministry would work to block full membership.
"We have already said we will exhaust all legal means," he told Spanish TV broadcaster Telemadrid. "I can say that we are reasonably optimistic that this provisionality will not become a definitive acceptance."
Spain claims sovereignty over Gibraltar, which sits at the southern end of the Iberian peninsula at the entrance to the Mediterranean.

Do they have room for a field in Gibraltar?

They barely have room for an airport. I remember that there is a road that goes through one of their runways. Instead of train crossings, Gibraltarians have to deal with plane crossings.

They could build the pitch on the runway. Just stop a match when a plane comes through

Doesn't even look like there are any warning lights at the crossing.

Look at the bottom of the photo, there are gates about 200 yards or so from the runway.
