La Liga Given Green-Light By Spanish Government To Resume Its Season On June 8
Spain was one of the countries impacted the most by the coronavirus pandemic, and although they tried to continue playing sports, it simply was not possible. The premier soccer league in Spain, La Liga, has had its season suspended since March. On Saturday, the league got some good news.
Spain’s prime minister Pedro Sanchez announced that La Liga will be allowed to resume its season starting June 8.
In a speech, Sanchez said that it is the right time for the return of La Liga. “The time has come to resume many daily activities,” he said.
Although La Liga is free to resume its season starting June 8, they are eyeing a resumption to its season starting June 11. There are still a lot of details that needs to be ironed out, as it is unclear as to whether or not teams will play the final 11 games in their season, or if they will play a modified schedule.
