 La Liga To Resume June 11 Amidst COVID-19 Scare

La Liga president Javier Tebas said on Friday that the league is hoping to resume on June 11 and start the 2020/21 season by September 12.

The move is coming just as governments across the world are battling to curtail the spread of the coronavirus pandemic that has claimed thousands of lives.

According to La Liga President said there are still 11 rounds of matches in the Spanish top flight to be played this term.

“The important thing will be to know the end date of the 2019-20 season,”

“God willing, we will restart on June 11. We are waiting for Madrid and Barcelona to move onto phase two (of easing of lockdown rules).” Tebas told Marca. “The next one will start on September 12.

The Spanish government last week gave La Liga the green light to resume from June 8.

Tebas also said that television viewers would be able to choose whether to watch matches, which will all be played behind closed doors, with virtual sound effects added.
