La Liga is now aiming for its clubs to return to training as soon as possible.
After a raft of measures were released by the Spanish government, to ease coronavirus related restrictions.
Guidelines For Clubs
La Liga has already sent all teams in Spain’s top flight, a detailed set of procedures to be followed.
These include individual training efforts, followed by smaller group practices, leading on to full training.
Yet all clubs will have to adhere to the phases outlined by the Spanish Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez this week.
The preparatory phase, or phase 0, allows individual training sessions to take place.
Once progress has been made to phase 1, group training sessions will be permitted.
The first two phases are set to be carried out between 4-11 May.
Tebas in Support
La Liga president Javier Tebas has lent his support to the transitional phases.
He compared playing football behind closed doors, as being no more dangerous than being in a fishing boat.
That is if all precautionary measures have been implemented.
Tebas also referred to football in Spain as an economic driver, that needs to be reactivated, like other economic sectors.
Barcelona in Front
Barcelona are currently top of La Liga, two points ahead of arch rivals Real Madrid.
There are 11 more matches to be played to complete the season.
The Catalans are seeking the club’s 27th league title overall.
Sevilla in third, and Real Sociedad in fourth, occupy the two other Champions League places for next season.
While at the bottom, Mallorca, Leganes, and Espanyol are in the relegation positions.
