La Liga can restart from June 8 behind closed doors after the Spanish Government have given the green signal. On Saturday, Spain’s Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez said La Liga can return as early as June 8.
“Spain has done what it should and now new horizons are opening for everyone. The time has come to bring back many day-to-day activities,” said Sanchez.
“From 8 June, La Liga will be back. Spanish football has a huge following, but it will not be the only recreational activity that will return,” he added.
Football in Spain was suspended on 12 March because of the coronavirus pandemic.
The league’s president Javier Tebas said he had hoped that it can resume from Friday, June 12, but the dates are yet to be officially announced.
“We are very pleased with the decision,” said Tebas.
“It is the result of the great work of clubs, players, coaches, CSD (National Sports Council) and agents,” he added.
“But we cannot lower our guard, it is important to follow health regulations and ensure the pandemic doesn’t come back,” he concluded.
La Liga players this week started training in groups of no more than 10.
La Liga teams have played 27 games so far, with each team having 11 games remaining to complete the 2019-20 campaign. Barcelona is at the top of the table with 2 points lead over Real Madrid and Sevilla is in the third place, 11 points behind. D Real Madrid.
