BARCELONA, Spain (AP) — Spanish Prime Minister Pedro Sánchez announced Saturday that the soccer league in Spain will be allowed to resume from June 8.
While the top tier, La Liga, can play from this date, it has already said it wants to resume play on June 12. It is unclear when the first games will be held.
There has been no play in the top tier since March 12 due to the coronavirus crisis.
Teams have recently returned to training at club facilities, but with players practicing individually. Players are also undergoing tests for the coronavirus.
The interruption to the season forced several clubs, including Barcelona, to reduce player salaries because of a drop in revenues.
