La Liga hint at fans returning to some stadiums in the near future. La Liga president Javier Tebas has hinted at a potential return for a restricted number of fans at top flight matches
The top two tiers of Spanish football restart next week behind closed doors, as part of a staggered emergence from the coronavirus state of alarm in Spain.
However, Tebas is committed to bringing supporters back into stadiums, and he confirmed that certain grounds could be permitted to do so, depending on their local lock down status.
“I am in favour of playing in front of the public as soon as possible It is possible that this could happen in some cities before others, and I am in favour of that.” Tebas told COPE.
Tebas’ policy of allowing teams to bring fans back into grounds will benefit the regions entering into Phase 3 on June 8.
However, the cities of Madrid and Barcelona as well as the community of Castilla y Leon, will only move into Phase 2 tomorrow, due to stricter measures imposed in these areas.
This will affect top flight clubs, including Real Madrid, Atletico Madrid, Getafe, Leganes, Barcelona, Espanyol and Real Valladolid.
