La Liga president Javier Tebas has advised clubs to risk total damages of € 700 million owing to this year’s coronavirus disruption, and expects the 2020-21 season to begin on September 12.
To resume the season organizers worked tirelessly behind the scenes to make it realistic, says Tebas, but much of the logistical problems would rely on how simple lockout steps are taken by the country’s national governments.
“We are going to launch on June 11, God willing,” Tebas told. “Let’s hope that Madrid and Barcelona will reach Phase Two.”
“At La Liga, there are over 130 people working so that all can be done in a new way: traveling, organizing, and everything.”
“We’re ready and the important thing is the day we finish the competition, and the next one starts on September 12.”
“Returning doesn’t mean we won’t lose millions. Our clubs are going to lose at least € 700 m and that’s going to have to be recovered. In that push, it’s going to be amazing to see who has believed in the industry from the beginning.”
