And Javier Tebas has revealed that a failure to finish the season could end up costing their clubs $ 1 billion in lost TV money, doorstep and sponsorship.
The La Liga president said their matches could start again on May 28, early June or the end of this month – but places great emphasis on the condition of other European countries.
“If we do not resume, the economic impact on Spanish clubs, including money from European competitions, would be worth around 1 billion euros,” Tebas told media, as reported by ESPN.
“This figure is not only based on revenue from the league, but also includes money that teams will not receive revenue from the Champions League. The losses will be 300 million euros if the matches are played behind closed doors, then 150 million euros if we resume with the fans because of the damage that has already been caused. “
The Premier League remains committed to ending the season, but football has been suspended indefinitely due to the coronavirus epidemic.
But La Liga is working on potential return dates.
“The current scenarios under discussion are to restart the Spanish league on May 28, June 6 or even until June 28,” added Tebas.
“But we will have to see what will happen in April. And it’s not just Spain, but what’s going on elsewhere.
“UEFA is considering two scenarios for European competitions. The first implies that the European and European championships take place in parallel: the leagues on weekends and European matches in the middle of the week.

“The other scenario is for two blocks. First, national competitions would be played until July, then European matches would be played in July or August, depending on when all the leagues could end. “
