La Liga return – Games to be played every day for a month

A report by Daily Mail claims that La Liga is set to return with games to be played every day for a month. According to the league president, Javier Tebas, La Liga will finish its season once football returns in June.

La Liga was put on hold in March along with other major leagues around the world due to coronavirus. However, a plan for a restart is being made for June 12th, similar to what is being planned in England.

Tebas insisted that the risk to players would be minimal once football resumes in Spain but pointed put that June 12 is not cast in stone and is subject to change. In a chat with El Partidaso on Movistar as cited by Daily Mail, he said:

“I don’t know when football will return. I don’t know if the most probable date is June 19, I would like it to be June 12. It will depend on spikes and contagions.

“There would be league games daily for 35 days, 24 hours before the game the players will be tested.

“The lowest risk will be during games, I ask that health regulations are followed to get to the start with as few infected as possible.

“We’re very on top of the control of players, at home I ask that they keep following the protocol.

“Our conduct should be exemplary to society, I see a lot of responsibility on the players.” he added.

Leagues across Europe are preparing for a return to footballing action and La Liga will follow the footsteps of others like the Premier League, Serie A, and the Bundesliga which returns on May 16.
