It's official now! The 2019/20 La Liga season has been given the green light to resume its course from June 8 by the Spanish government.
The COVID-19 pandemic put the current campaign on an indefinite pause in early March but the country's prime minister Pedro Sanchez has now confirmed that the season can be resumed from the second week of the summer.
"Spain has done what it should and now new horizons are opening for everyone," he said, as quoted by Marca.
"The time has come to bring back many day-to-day activities. From June 8, La Liga will be back."
The matches will, obviously, be held behind closed doors.
The exact day of the resumption, however, is yet to be known. La Liga president Javier Tebas is expected to confirm it in the coming days.
