The Spanish league season will resume after a three-month coronavirus lockdown on June 11 with the Seville derby, and the 2020-2021 season will start on September 12, the Spanish Sports Council confirmed on Friday.

There are still 11 rounds of matches in the Spanish top flight to be played this term.

“The important thing will be to know the end date of the 2019-20 season,” Tebas told Marca. “The next one will start on September 12.

“God willing, we will restart on June 11. We are waiting for Madrid and Barcelona to move onto phase two (of easing of lockdown rules).”

The Spanish government last week gave La Liga the green light to resume from the week beginning June 8.

“More than 130 people are currently working so that everything can be done in a new format: the travel, the organisation, everything,” said Tebas.

The German Bundesliga has already played three matchdays following its restart earlier this month, while the English Premier League and Italy’s Serie A are also set to return in mid-June.

But the top-flight seasons in France, Belgium and the Netherlands have all been ended.

Barcelona are the league leaders with two points ahead of Real Madrid.
