LaLiga president Javier Tebas has set out the dates for the end of this season and the start of next season in Spain.

LaLiga Santander and LaLiga SmartBank are set to resume in June following the suspension that resulted from the coronavirus pandemic.

“We’ll restart, if God allows, on June 11,” Tebas said in a videoconference call with MARCA.

“We’re hoping that Madrid and Barcelona pass into Phase Two [of the lockdown de-escalation plan], which is where we can play.

“There are more than 130 people at LaLiga working so that everything can be done in a new way.

“Travel, organisation, everything.

“We’re prepared and the important thing will be the day we finish the league.

“We’ll start next season on September 12.”

Tebas also revealed plans to give people watching the action at home the choice on how they view the matches, which will be played behind closed doors.

“Tonight, we have audiovisual tests so that the viewer can choose two images: the real one and one with a virtual crowd and crowd noise.

“We want to give the choice to the fans: silence or a simulation of the crowds.

“The tests I’ve seen are interesting and really catch your eye, but there will be two options.”
