However, the funding was approved on condition that the city's stake in both clubs is increased to two-fifths and that the clubs' bylaws are changed to ensure that decisions on their activities are discussed at the council.

Some members of the council opposed the proposal to provide 1 million euros to the clubs, saying that the funds ought to be allocated to culture or public organizations or children's education.
