The President of the Spanish Government, Pedro Sánchez, announced on Saturday that the Soccer League will be able to resume its tournament from June 8.

The League has said it wants to resume games on June 12. It is unclear when the next date will be played.

The first division tournament has been suspended since March 12 due to the coronavirus pandemic.

The teams recently resumed training, but with individual practices from the players, who undergo COVID-19 tests.

Barcelona and other teams have had to cut player salaries due to falling earnings.

Barcelona leads the League with two points advantage over Real Madrid, played on the 27th of the 38 dates.

In Germany, the Bundesliga resumed the tournament in stadiums without an audience.

The Spanish authorities have not announced the hygiene measures that they will impose on sport.

Sánchez said that the game will resume under conditions that guarantee maximum health security for all competitors.

Spain has confirmed more than 28,000 COVID-19 deaths.
