La Liga president Javier Tebas spoke with Marca about renewing European football championships and named a tentative date for the season renewal.
“European Championships will resume in mid-May. However, everything depends on coronavirus and pandemic development.
The games may resume even earlier, though we are thinking about mid-May. It depends on the organizers whether the fans will attend the matches. Countries may take a different approach.
There is a similar plan for Euro tournaments. It is great to see all the tournaments resumed at the same time. This issue is not just about Spain.” – Tebas said.
Recall that due to the rapid spread of Coronavirus, UEFA has postponed the European Championship to be held in June 2021. The current club season is scheduled to end at UEFA by June 30.
Due to the pandemic, the Spanish Championship was stopped after the 27th round. Valencia, Espanyol, and Alaves have made statements about confirmed cases of Coronavirus at the club.
Butragueno: “If La Liga renews in May, all problems will be resolved.”
According to Emilio Butragueno, if the situation in the world stabilizes and La Liga resumes in May, all problems will be resolved.
“La Liga’s renewal in May automatically means that the season will be free until June 30, and there will be no force majeure. It should be noted that the 27 rounds of the Spanish domestic championship have already taken place. So, allocating the rest of the rounds for two months should not be a big problem. ”
“I hope things will get better, and the football world will soon be driven.”
