Spanish FA gives update on La Liga decisions

Spanish Federation president gives update on how La Liga will crown its champion

Luis Rubiales held a web conference to reveal the possible scenarios to crown their champion amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

La Liga is one of the most intense football competitions in the world, which makes fans wonder how they will solve the current championship amid the coronavirus pandemic.

Today, Royal Spanish Football Federation (RFEF) president Luis Rubiales shared a few details on how the entity and La Liga will join forces to see the tournament going on until the very end to determine their champion.

In a web conference, Rubiales detailed how the RFEF has been working closely with UEFA to see the end of the season go on as planned, even working out some solutions with football's governing body in Europe just in case there are any more health setbacks.

"The 2019-20 season has to end with the same rules and with the lowest amount of changes, even though this is an exceptional scenario. I can't guarantee that the league will end by June 30, as some have stated. All I can say for the moment is that it's unfair to end the competition as it is right now," Rubiales said.

The president's words hint that Barcelona will not be crowned as champions, as some experts suggested.

Furthermore, Rubiales added that the need to change the league's format will be assessed if there are no more dates available to end the season before June 30.

"We are not supporting the idea of calling off the season. We will get together with everyone that has a say in the league to find the best possible solution," Rubiales added.

The RFEF president also hinted that the Copa del Rey and Supercopa de España were a massive success, even if the cup competition is yet to crown its champion.

"Football won with the revamped format in the Copa del Rey and in the Spanish Super Cup. We still have not decided a date for the Copa del Rey final, and we will try to have it played with fans in the stadium. Unless there are legal impediments to do so, we will try to fit it in the calendar," the president said.

Before the conference concluded, Rubiales revealed that La Liga will not go back to action immediately after health authorities allow games to be played again.

"There will be a two-week waiting period before the competition kicks off again. We will only see the league back on when those in charge give us the go-ahead," Rubiales concluded.
