The Spanish National Sports Council announced Friday that La Liga will officially resume play on June 11 amid the coronavirus pandemic, according to ESPN.
Like most of the world's top soccer leagues, the La Liga season has been suspended since March due to COVID-19. By resuming, it will follow in the footsteps of the Bundesliga, which returned to action two weeks ago.
Per the Guardian's Sid Lowe, the Seville derby between Sevilla and Real Betis will be La Liga's first match back June 11.
According to ESPN's Alex Kirkland, the National Sports Council released the following statement: "The Spanish football federation [RFEF] and La Liga have agreed, as part of the Contact Group formed together with the National Sports Council [CSD], the format of the eleven remaining matchdays to complete La Liga Santander and La Liga SmartBank [the first and second divisions]."
