La Liga president Javier Tebas is still considering June 6th as the perfect date to resume the 2019-2020 season, according to a report from MARCA quoting the Spanish Footballers’ Association. If the competition returns then, La Liga would finish on July 30th, per that same report. That planning will obviously need the approval of Spain’s Health authorities, who are monitoring the situation.

Clubs would be allowed to resume their training activities on May 4th or May 11th, per that same report. Then, the players would need to complete a small pre-season given that they’ve been training at home for a month, so they must improve their physical condition in order to prevent injuries.

The Coronavirus pandemic is slowly but steadily improving in Spain and June 6th seems to be a reasonable date if the games are going to be played behind closed doors.

More than 20,000 people have died because of Covid-19 in the country and its population have been in lockdown for more than a month now.
