MADRID - Spanish football clubs owe the government 752 million ($982 million) in unpaid back taxes, according to figures released Tuesday.

The United Left party says figures provided by the government show an increase of nearly 150 million ($195 million) in unpaid taxes over the past four years, with topflight clubs making up nearly half a billion euros ($653 million) of the overall figure. At least six top division clubs are already in bankruptcy protection.

The numbers were released after the United Left, a communist party led coalition, submitted a written request to parliament for the information.
