Games. Every Day. La Liga Plans Return to League Play

With Spain’s First and Second division returning to training, La Liga president, Javier Tebas says that there will be “zero” risk for matches to be played every day when league play returns to Spain.

Tebas has shifted his focus on adhering to health measures to ensure that there will be very few to no infections upon return.

In Tebas’ plan to return to league play, which is aimed to start by June 12, games would be played every day of the week to allow the 11 remaining match days in the 2019-20 season to be completed by the end of July, with teams given 72 hours’ rest between matches. All games would still be played behind closed doors.

Upon all teams returning to training last week in Spain’s first and second divisions, only 5 players had returned with positive coronavirus test results, among all 42 teams. Those who test positive must stay home and are only able to join their teammates when given two negative test results 72 hours apart.
