La Liga gets approval from govt to resume from June 8


Spanish soccer’s top flight division La Liga can return to action from June 8 after being disrupted by the novel corona-virus pandemic, Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez said on Saturday.
All organized soccer in Spain was provisionally suspended on March 12 although clubs in the top two divisions have since returned to group training.
La Liga has yet to officially confirm a date on which it will resume, although president Javier Tebas had said previously he hoped the season could do so from June 12.
“Spain has done what it needed to do and now new horizons can open for everyone. The time has come to recover many of our daily activities. From June 8 La Liga will be able to return,” Sanchez said on Saturday.
“Spanish football has a huge following but it will not be the only recreation activity that will return.”
Spain is one of the countries worst-affected by the corona-virus outbreak, with more than 28,000 deaths and more than 234,000 cases of infection diagnosed. But the daily death toll has been steadily declining, with only 56 deaths registered on Friday.
