Barcelona leaving Spain'sLa Liga football system for another league is a possibility according to the club's president Josep Maria Bartomeu.
The team has become a symbol for the region, with many Catalonians donning a blue-and-red jersey as they march each year in the region's day of celebration on September 11.
"What we saw in the country yesterday is unacceptable". We argue that re is a political solution in respect of citizens. "Together we are unstoppable in defending democracy".
There was concern that the match would have to be postponed due to a lack of police resources as a result of the vote, which the Spanish government says is illegal, although it was given the green light at a meeting of Catalonia's security council on Thursday.
The Barcelona-born Pique, the most vocal supporter of the Catalan movement on Barca, cried as he talked about the violence.
"Barcelona against Las Palmas should never have been played, not at all", Catalonia-born Guardiola, told Catalan radio station RAC1. "We tried to call the game off with La Liga, but when they said no we chose to play without supporters so that the whole world can see the situation in Catalonia and how we are suffering".
"In the face of the outrageous repression that the Catalan people are suffering, we ask FC Barcelona to suspend the game", a statement said ahead of kick-off, via Marca.
"This was one of the most hard decisions that I've made", said the 54-year-old.
"It wasn't possible and the club wanted to do a gesture with the circumstances surrounding Catalonia". Do you evaluate options for playing in French or United Kingdom leagues?
Bartomeu completed his speech by saying "Long live Barça, Catalonia".
Bartomeu's comments come after Catalonia's sports minister hinted that the club could play in the Premier League if La Liga reject their registration following independence.
He accused the ruling conservative Popular Party of "using all means at its disposal to lie, because over these years they've said that it was a small minority and that we demonstrated in a rowdy manner". "We will value it when we get to that moment".
