Atletico Madrid announced on social media that their opening match against Real Sociedad "cannot start due to the non-appearance of the refereeing team".
"We referees want to provide the best possible service to football, and this necessarily involves obtaining working conditions close to those of the men's first division," the referees said in a statement.
"In the event that the referees and their assistants do not go to their appointments, the LPFF will file a complaint so that the corresponding sanctions are adopted," it added.
The clubs insist that they have already sent a proposal to increase the remuneration of referees, but have not received any response.
