"From 8 June, La Liga will be back".

Teams have been in training for a couple weeks now, which gave an indication that competitive football would soon be on the horizon.

Spanish Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez has told foreign tourists: 'We'll will be waiting for you from July'.

The Segunda Division - Spain's second tier - has also been cleared to resume on the same date.

Barcelona tops the table at two points above Real Madrid after 27 of 38 rounds.

Spanish teams were allowed to return to training recently and have been working in groups of 10 this week.

"The time has come to bring back many day-to-day activities".

"I hope for some sense from the Spanish Football Federation on this, because it's very important for us to be able to give both our national and global broadcasters, and fans across the world, football on as many days as possible to ensure as little disruption as possible".

France's Ligue 1 has been cut short, with Paris Saint-Germain declared champions, while the Bundesliga in Germany became the first major European league to resume behind closed doors last weekend.

"It is the result of the great work of clubs, players, coaches, CSD (Spain's sports authority), agents, etc", Spanish league president Javier Tebas wrote on Twitter.

Spain has been one of the countries worst-affected by the coronavirus outbreak, with more than 28,000 deaths and over 234,000 cases of infection diagnosed. However, it's now emerging from one of Europe's most stringent lockdowns, which was implemented on March 14.

Meanwhile, Portugal's Primeira Liga will offer its followers a feast of summer football when it resumes on 3 June, with matches to be played nearly every day according to a new fixture list the league released today. The losses if the league resumes with matches in empty stadiums would be about 300 million euros.
