Real Madrid's decision go to the civil courts to appeal against their disqualification from the Copa del Rey could cost them very dearly. Both the FIFA and the UEFA have regulations that prohibit affiliated clubs from taking competition disputes to non-sporting legal jurisdictions. If the Blancos confirm their decision (they have two months to present their appeal to the civil courts), FIFA could sanction them in any one of three ways:

- A fine. Depending on what the committees deem opportune, the club could face a fine of at least €100,000.

- Points docked. The club could be docked points in La Liga, despite the fact that it would be a punishment related to a matter involving the Copa del Rey.

- Suspension. Real Madrid risk being suspended from national competitions, such as next year's Copa del Rey or from La Liga. They could even face suspension from any European competition for which they qualify, such as the Champions League.

The Spanish Football Federation (RFEF) must formally notify Real Madrid that, according to the sports regulations, the club has to advise the UEFA and the FIFA that they are going to the civil courts. On this question, the world football governing body is quite clear.

The last big case of sports litigation was that of the Swiss club Sion, who were disqualified from the Europa League for fielding ineligible players against Glasgow Celtic in 2011. The, at the time, director of legal affairs of the FIFA, Marco Villiger, warned the Swiss club, and any other club, of the possible consequences, of taking such a case to the civil courts. "If every club went to a local court when they disagreed with something, international football would no longer be possible. Arguments over the games which involved ineligible players will continue long after this case is closed. Sooner or later sanctions will be implemented. Ultimately, once the temporary injunction is lifted, the case will be a very clear one", he said at the time.
