Spain’s Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez has given La Liga as well as the country’s second division competition permission to resume on June 8.
For this to work well, the league will have to follow guidelines from the Spanish Ministry of Health.

“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.
However, La Liga is yet to confirm a restart date of it’s own, as the league’s president Javier Tebas said he had hoped Spain’s top flight would restart on 12 June.
As of now, La Liga players have already resumed training in groups of no more than 10.
With this announcement, La Liga will become the second of Europe’s top five leagues to resume after the Bundesliga got their 2019/20 campaign back underway last weekend.
