No Days Off for La Liga Upon Returning!

The Spanish Football Federation ( La Liga) has allowed matches to be played every day of the week in order to ensure the 2019/20 season is completed.

In a statement, La Liga said they were willing to “show its goodwill” by allowing La Liga to play on Monday and Friday with a temporary measure initially preventing that this season.

According to Marca, when La Liga returns there will be 32 consecutive days of football.

From June 11 to July 12, there will be at least one La Liga played each day before all 20 clubs will play their final two matches simultaneously on July 15 and July 19.

Marca has even drawn up a draft calendar showing exactly when the remaining fixtures will take place.

Meanwhile, president Javier Tebas has outlined La Liga’ plans to offer viewers the chance to hear virtual crowd noise during the matches, which will be played without supporters to prevent further spread of the virus.

“At a meeting of the contact group they form alongside the CSD, the Spanish soccer federation (RFEF) and La Liga have agreed to the format of the final 11 rounds of fixtures of La Liga and the second division,” said the CSD’s statement.

The statement added that the season would finish by July 18, “depending on the evolution of the virus”.

La Liga will be the second of Europe’s top five leagues to resume action after the pandemic paralyzed all major sporting competitions around the world last March, following Germany’s Bundesliga starting up earlier this month.
