La Liga: Resumption of collective training in Spain

Collective training in La Liga resumed on Monday, June 1, for the first time since shut down in March due to the coronavirus pandemic, championship officials said.

“The clubs will begin collective training on June 1 after the government’s latest health decree to ease restrictions,” La Liga said in a statement on Saturday.

Liga President Javier Tebas said that Liga clubs can play matches every day after the Spanish Football Federation (RFEF) agreed last week.

The final phase of the training program gives teams ten days to prepare for the start of the season starting June 11 in Spain. Earlier this month, clubs started individual training.

Madrid will host Eibar on June 14 at the 6,000-seat Alfredo Di Stéfano Stadium, used primarily by the club’s “B” team in the center of Ciudad Real Madrid on the outskirts of the city.

The La Liga suspended its games for the first time on March 14 and Tebas estimated that the failure of the season would cost the clubs around € 1 billion.
