Spain’s National Sports Council (CSD) has confirmed that LaLiga will restart June 11, three months after the COVID-19 pandemic forced its suspension.
This comes after the country’s government approved the return of competitive sports in the country beginning June 8.
“The Spanish football federation [RFEF] and La Liga have agreed, as part of the Contact Group formed together with the National Sports Council [CSD], the format of the eleven remaining match days to complete La Liga Santander and La Liga SmartBank [the first and second divisions],” an official statement from the CSD read.
LaLiga will resume with the Seville Derby between Sevilla and Real Betis on Thursday, June 11.
Other match day 28 fixtures will be played between June 12 and June 15.
The games will include Real Madrid vs Eibar and Real Mallorca vs Barcelona.
