MADRID, Spain -- Racing Santander's boycott of a Copa del Rey quarter-final over unpaid wages caused the third-tier Spanish club to be banned from the domestic cup tournament for one season.

Santander refused to play after taking the field against Real Sociedad on Thursday, with the referee suspending the quarterfinal return leg after one minute.

For that stance, Santander was banned from the Copa del Rey for the 2014-15 season, and the heavily indebted club also received a fine of 3,006 euros ($4,056).

Racing players boycotted the match after club president Angel Lavin refused to resign after the players had gone four months without being paid.

Real Sociedad advanced to play Barcelona in the semifinals after winning the first leg 3-1.
