Spanish League to Restart June 8

Officials of the Spanish La Liga, have scheduled June 8 as the date for the league to resume.

The Spanish La Liga has been suspended since March 23rd, as a result of the Coronavirus that has brought many activities, including sporting events, to a halt.

Of the big 5 European football leagues, France has ended its season, handing the trophy to table toppers, Paris Saint Germain. While the Bundesliga officially resumed sporting activities a week ago.

Meanwhile, the English Premier League is set to restart on the 8th of June also.

Now, the La Liga has also been given the green light to restart from June 8, following guidelines from Spain’s Ministry of Health.

La Liga has yet to officially confirm a date on which it will resume, although president Javier Tebas had said previously he hoped the season could do so from June 12.

Before the March 23 suspension, Barcelona were two points ahead of bitter rivals Real Madrid, with 11 games left to play.

“That’s what I hope,” Tebas said. “We shouldn’t have any problems playing on Mondays across the eleven rounds of matches we have left to play.

Training had resumed in early May, with clubs only allowed to hold training sessions for group of 10 players.

“I hope for some sense from the Spanish Football Federation on this, because it’s very important for us to be able to give both our national and international broadcasters, and fans across the world, football on as many days as possible to ensure as little disruption as possible.”
