The La Liga president expressed his hope that this season would not end without the presence of spectators.
La Liga president Javier Tebas has expressed hope that fans will return to the stadiums before the final weeks of the season.
Following the Covid-19 virus pandemic, football fans were barred from stadiums in Spain and across Europe. Football was suspended for three months in Spain and the continuation of the 2019-20 season was followed in June and July, but fans have not yet been allowed to return to the stadiums.
There has been a lot of speculation over the last few months about when the fans will return, although Tebas said in December that it was not the time to focus on the issue. Now that vaccination of Covid-19 has begun and the infection rate has dropped, Tebas expressed hope that fans will return to the stadiums by the end of the season.
Tebas told reporters, in quotes carried byMarca
“We are prepared to have fans in the stadiums, but we must speak with the CSD (Spain’s sports council), on what dates and the number of fans. My hope is to have fans in the stadiums for the last few games this season, but the CSD and the ministries will have to speak with health. We will have to see the progress of the vaccination. Perhaps for the last week of April or the beginning of May. Today the vice president of the Community of Madrid has said that in 300 cultural shows held, no outbreak had been detected.”
