- The competition was suspended on March 12 following the coronavirus outbreak.
- Teams returned to training during the second week of May.
- The prime minister Pedro Sanchez has now cleared the top tier to restart from June 8 onwards.
It looks like La Liga will return to action faster than the Premier League after prime minister Pedro Sanchez green-lighted the restart plans today.
The Spanish top division has been put on hold on March 12, a day before the Premier League followed suit. La Liga outfits were cleared to return to training in early May. League president Javier Tebas warned that football may not recover if the current campaign is not completed.
La Liga will seemingly aim to conclude all matches by July 29, with the Champions League scheduled for an August 2 restart. They will have to contend with games every three days most likely - and definitely without fans.
This can only be good for football and provides further encouragement for the Premier League bosses ahead of resuming action in June. Last weekend the German Bundesliga became the first major European league to kick off after the enforced break.
