La Liga could resume behind closed doors from 8 June, says Spanish Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez.
La Liga teams have 11 games to play this season, with leaders Barcelona two points ahead of Real Madrid at the top of the division. La Liga players this week started training in groups of no more than 10.
“Spain has done what it should and now new horizons are opening for everyone. The time has come to bring back many day-to-day activities,” said Sanchez.
“From 8 June, La Liga will be back. Spanish football has a huge following but it will not be the only recreational activity that will return.”
The Spanish second division is also set to resume at the same time as the top flight, with reports in Spain suggesting the derby between Sevilla and Real Betis will be the first La Liga game to take place.
“We are very pleased with the decision,” said Tebas. “It is the result of the great work of clubs, players, coaches, CSD (National Sports Council) and agents.
“But we cannot lower our guard, it is important to follow health regulations and ensure the pandemic doesn’t come back.”
Football in Spain was suspended on 12 March because of the coronavirus pandemic.
The players in the top two divisions were only able to return to individual training in early May after being tested for the virus.
France’s Ligue 1 has been cut short, with Paris Saint-Germain declared cha
mpions, while the Bundesliga in Germany became the first major European league to resume behind closed doors last weekend.
Tebas has said the chance is low of players infecting each other during games.
“In the match environment, infection is practically impossible because we have carried out a study that we will present that shows the smallest risk is in matches if everyone respects the medical protocol,” Tebas said earlier this month.
“If things are done as they should be, there shouldn’t be any infections. If five infections appear in one club, it would suggest some negligence.”
Meanwhile, Portugal’s Primeira Liga will resume on 3 June, with Portimonense against Gil Vicente and Famalicao hosting leaders Porto.
Porto lead rivals Benfica by a point with 10 rounds left.
