Spanish Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez confirms La Liga 2019/20 season can resume from 8 June.
The statement was made during this afternoon’s press conference, in which he assured “the worst is behind us” after COVID-19 deaths and new cases fell significantly in recent weeks.
The PM also announced that the borders were opening up again to tourists from July onwards.
Although June 8 is the earliest possible date for the games, it remains to be seen if that will be the precise kick-off or several days later.
The German Bundesliga has already resumed last weekend, while the Portuguese Primera Liga starts up on June 3 and its season is due to end on July 21.
Serie A is on track to begin games from June 13 or 20
