Spanish prime minister gives green light for top-flight football to return on June 8

LaLiga is set to resume on June 8 after Spanish prime minister Pedro Sanchez gave the green light for football to return next month.

Spain’s top-flight will become the second major league to restart, with fixtures already back under way in Germany’s Bundesliga.

Players have returned to training in Spain

The Seville derby, between Sevilla and Real Betis, is likely to be the first game back, despite concerns over the government lifting lockdown region by region.

The Spanish top-flight was suspended on March 12 because of coronavirus but the league stepped up its preparations for a resumption as group training of up to 10 players was allowed at the start of the week.

Each team has 11 fixtures still to play in LaLiga, which will confirm a return date in the coming days although the league’s president has stated June 12 is an option.

“The resumption of major professional sporting competitions and, in particular, LaLiga will be allowed from the week of June 8,” Sanchez said.
