The Spanish league La liga has finally been given the green light to resume competitive league football. This was confirmed by the Spanish Prime Minister, Pedro Sanchez. He made the announcement during a press conference where he stated that the league will return on June 8 which is just two weeks away.
The new development comes after the league was suspended in March due to the coronavirus pandemic.
According to a Goal.com report, La Liga authorities are looking forward to Friday, June 12 as a feasible date for league matches to commence and are working round the clock to ensure they meet the target.
The return of the Spanish La Liga comes after the successful return of the German Bundesliga which emerged as the first European top flight league to resume the 2019-20 season following the coronavirus lockdown.
LaLiga clubs are already getting set for the return having stepped up their training this week though under strict social distancing rules.
All 20 teams have 11 games remaining, with Barcelona topping the league closely followed by arch-rivals, Real Madrid who are two points behind.
LaLiga’s updated fixture list is set to come out on May 28.
The league organizers have also drawn up a highly detailed plan to ensure everyone complies with health safety and precautions.
That involves having a maximum of 197 people inside the stadium on matchday with players and officials tested 24 hours before every fixture.
