La Liga: Tebas Eyes September 12th For New Season
By Sampson Adedeji
The President of La Liga Javier Tebas has confirmed that the new season of 2020/2021 will commence on September 12th this year.
Having received government approval last weekend to complete the current season, La Liga is set to start up again on June 11 and finish on July 19, BSN Reports.
“The important thing will be when the season finishes although we’ll only be able to congratulate ourselves when we start the following season,” Tebas said on Friday in an online forum organised by Spanish newspaper Marca.
“God willing that day will be September 12 and hopefully we’ll be able to say we have overcome this most difficult period but at least we will be better prepared.”
Tebas has led the campaign to get the season back on track since it was postponed on March 12, warning that clubs could lose up to € one billion ($1.11 billion) collectively if the remaining 11 rounds of matches could not be completed.
