- July 30: 15,000 faked tracksuits of Spanish football teams in Montcada i Reixac and Igualada (Catalonia) .
- August 11: 2,992 faked tracksuits of Spanish football teams in Mallorca (Balearic Islands) plus other 2,400 in San Bartolomé de Tirajana (Canary Islands).
- August 20: 30,000 counterfeit garments of luxury brands in Maspalomas (Canary Islands).
