La Liga has established an online platform for supporters to report instances of racism during matches.
The league made this move following its eighth complaint to the authorities about the abuse received by Real Madrid striker Vinicius Jr.
The Brazilian player accused La Liga of not taking any action after videos surfaced on social media, showing fans shouting racial slurs and hurling objects at him during a game in December.
He was also racially abused during Real’s 2-1 Clasico defeat to Barcelona. In response to the latest incident at Nou Camp, La Liga reported the racist insults to the Barcelona Court of Instruction.
However unlike other football authorities, La Liga does not have the authority to penalize racist behavior by supporters on its own. Thus, it files reports to different legal bodies.
The complaints channel on La Liga’s website allows fans to provide information on any perpetrators and assist in lodging complaints.
In February, a Mallorca supporter had his membership suspended for three years after racially abusing both Vinicius and Villarreal’s Samuel Chukwueze.
The 22-year-old footballer stated in December that La Liga was doing nothing about “racists” attending games, citing abuse he suffered during a match at Real Valladolid.
Similarly, in September, some Atletico Madrid supporters sang racist songs targeting him, but the Spanish prosecutors closed the case three months later due to the difficulty of identifying those responsible.
Earlier in the season, a panellist on a Spanish football show likened the player’s goal celebrations to those of a monkey.
