La Liga season to restart on June 11

Spanish soccer's top-flight will resume after a three-month pause due to the coronavirus pandemic on June 11 with the local derby between Sevilla and Real Betis, the government's department for sport (CSD) said in a statement on Friday.

"At a meeting of the contact group they form alongside the CSD, the Spanish soccer federation (RFEF) and La Liga have agreed to the format of the final 11 rounds of fixtures of La Liga and the second division," said the statement.

"The competition will restart on the weekend of June 13 and 14, with the first match being Sevilla's game with Real Betis on Thursday June 11.

"The last round of matches will take place, provisionally and depending on the evolution of the virus, on the weekend of July 18 and 19."

The CSD also said the RFEF and La Liga had pledged to work together to set fixtures for the remainder of the season, despite the two organising bodies clashing in the past, including in court, over the scheduling of matches.

"Given the circumstances, the CSD would like to congratulate the members of the group for their spirit of dialogue and the good will they showed during the meeting at the department's headquarters," added the statement.
