While training for La Liga teams is set to resume this week, we are planning to take on the upper echelons of Spanish football for a return to competition scheduled for June. “The current circumstances are unprecedented, but we hope to start playing again in June and finish our 2019-2020 season this summer. To come back is to win! "Proclaimed, in a statement, Javier Tebas, president of La Liga.
After almost two months without playing (March 12), La Liga professional footballers will be subjected from Tuesday to screening tests for the new coronavirus, and will be able to resume training 48 hours after having obtained their negative result.
Deconfinement in four phases
The country's health and sports authorities have given the green light, and La Liga, the Spanish Federation (RFEF) and medical experts have jointly drawn up a return-to-training protocol, "with the aim of ensuring the greatest safety for the health of everyone involved, ”said the press release. This plan "will last approximately one month and will include different phases which will remain subject to the de-escalation plan established by the government," said the same press release. Since Monday, the Spanish government has launched its deconfinement plan in four phases.
