La Liga is set to resume on June 8 after the Spanish government gave the all-clear for the Spanish top-flight to kick-start their season.

La Liga has been out suspended since March but is now set to resume action once again next month.

Spanish Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez confirmed in an address to the nation that many daily activities will be allowed to start up again.

He also confirmed the date La Liga will be allowed to be played again.

“Spain has done what it should and now new horizons are opening for everyone,” Pedro Sanchez said as quoted by ESPN. “The time has come to recover many of the daily activities. From June 8 La Liga will return.”

La Liga president Javier Tebas tweeted his support of the premier’s decision, saying: “We are very happy with the decision, it is the result of the great work of clubs, players, coaches.

“CSD [National Sports Council] and agents were involved. But it is very important to follow the sanitary precautions and respect the evolution of the pandemic, we cannot lower our guard.”

La Liga clubs recently resumed full training and this is final confirmation we are all set to see Spanish football on our screens once again.

The Spanish top flight will now become the second European domestic league to resume action, after the Bundesliga did so last weekend.

The start date for La Liga remains June 12, where Barcelona and Real Madrid will continue their battle or the Spanish title.
