The Spanish league is set to resume in the second week of June after it was suspended as a result of the coronavirus pandemic.

“We’ll restart, if God allows, on June 11,” Tebas said in a videoconference call with MARCA.

“We’re hoping that Madrid and Barcelona pass into Phase Two [of the lockdown de-escalation plan], which is where we can play.

“There are more than 130 people at LaLiga working so that everything can be done in a new way.

“Travel, organisation, everything.

“We’re prepared and the important thing will be the day we finish the league.

“We’ll start next season on September 12.”

“Tonight, we have audiovisual tests so that the viewer can choose two images: the real one and one with a virtual crowd and crowd noise.

Tebas also revealed plans to give those at home the opportunity to choose how they wish to view the matches.

“We want to give the choice to the fans: silence or a simulation of the crowds.

“The tests I’ve seen are interesting and really catch your eye, but there will be two options.”
