MADRID.- La Liga and the Spanish Football Federation announced on Monday the indefinite suspension of professional football in the country until the government authorities “consider that they can resume and this does not pose any health risk”.
The announcement comes to the unbraned advance of the coronavirus in Spain.
Football competitions were initially suspended for two weeks, but the government reported Sunday that it will likely prolong the alarm state, implying maintaining restrictions on free transit across the country until at least April 11.
According to the Spanish authorities, more than 33,000 people have been infected with coronavirus in the country, with more than 2,182 deaths.
The crisis led to the suspension of Spain’s two main divisions on 12 March. A day earlier, the federation ordered the cancellation of all competitions without non-professional character.
