LaLiga and the Spanish soccer federation (RFEF) have decided to suspend the rest of the football calendar in Spain as more deaths are being recorded due to the coronavirus pandemic.
LaLiga and the Spanish soccer federation (RFEF) made the announcement in a joint statement on Monday.
Football activities in Spain had been postponed for two weeks due to the spread of the coronavirus with April 3 set as a resumed date.
According to La Liga and the Spanish football federation (RFEF), there will be no professional football in Spain until the country’s political leaders give the go-ahead.
A joint statement read: “The Monitoring Commission established by the current RFEF-LaLiga Coordination Agreement agrees the suspension of professional football competitions until the authorities of the Government of Spain and the General Administration of the State consider that they can be resumed without creating any health risk.
“Both the RFEF and LaLiga wish to express our greatest public gratitude to all those who are dedicating their best efforts to provide essential services to the Spanish people and also share our condolences for all the deceased and a warm embrace from the world of football to the many families that are losing loved ones.”
