La Liga preparing daily football games from 12 June

Monday 11 May 2020 | 13:58 CET | News
Spain's top-tier football league is preparing to air games "every day" for over a month if the season is allowed to restart next month, according to La Liga president Javier Tebas. Football matches have been suspended across the country since March due to the coronavirus outbreak but Tebas told a special edition of Movistar TV's 'El Partidazo' programme that the aim is to resume games behind closed doors on 12 June and to provide "interesting and groundbreaking" broadcasting options for fans.
