Spanish clubs out of Intertoto Cup 2001/2002

Spanish entries to this year's competition have been thrown out by UEFA. The decision was taken because neither Villarreal nor Málaga could commit themselves to participating. But given the fact that the Spanish Cup final won't be played till 30 June (the same weekend that the second placed qualifier would be required to play the second round of Intertoto), the result of which would have decided who would actually go into Intertoto, the clubs had little choice. Their places have now been given to Newcastle Utd. and Paris Saint Germain. (21.06.01)
