La Liga has been given the green light to restart from June 8, following guidelines from Spain’s Ministry of Health.

La Liga has yet to officially confirm a date on which it will resume, although president Javier Tebas had said previously he hoped the season could do so from June 12.

Football in Spain was suspended on March 23, with Barcelona two points ahead of Real Madrid in La Liga with all teams left with 11 matches still to play.

The Segunda Division – Spain’s second tier – has also been cleared to resume on the same date.

Reacting to the news on Twitter, Tebas said: “We are very happy for the decision, it is the result of the great work of clubs, players, technicians, CSD (National Sports Council) and agents involved.

“But we cannot lower our guard, it is important to follow health regulations and ensure the pandemic doesn’t come back.”

La Liga clubs are currently training in small groups of up to 10 people, having initially returned to individual training in early May.
