La Liga to resume on 11 June; 2020-21 season to start in September
Spain’s La Liga will resume on 11 June when Real Betis face Sevilla, and next season will start on 12 September.

Organisers want to end the season on the weekend of 18-19 July “depending on the evolution” of coronavirus.

The Spanish government’s department for sport said agreements had been reached with La Liga and therefore the Spanish soccer federation (RFEF).

Football was suspended on 12 March but Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez said it can resume from 8 June.

La Liga president Javier Tebas said: “The important thing are going to be when the season finishes, 

although we’ll only be ready to congratulate ourselves once we start the subsequent season.

“God willing, that day are going to be 12 September and hopefully we’ll be ready to say we’ve overcome this most difficult period, but a minimum of we’ll be better prepared.”

Following the Seville derby on 11 June, other clubs will begin playing fixtures over the subsequent weekend.

Tebas said audiovisual testing is being administered so fans have a choice of various viewing experiences when football returns behind closed doors.

Those watching reception can choose between two options – the important “silence” from the stadiums or “simulation of the crowds” with noises being played.

La Liga players started training in groups of no quite 10 last week and Tebas said subsequent objective is to reach full training.

Defending champions Barcelona are two points before Real Madrid at the highest of the table with 11 matches remaining.

On Thursday, the Premier League said it’ll return to action on 17 June with 92 fixtures this season still to be played.
