La Liga Games Set To Be Played Every Day For A Month Upon Return

La Liga Games Set To Be Played Every Day For A Month Upon Return

It's been a while, but football is slowly starting to come back. The Bundesliga has had massive viewerships numbers since its return a couple of weeks ago despite the unfamiliar sight of empty stands.

The clash between Borussia Dortmund and Bayern Munich in midweek was of the highest quality, leaving football fans excited about the prospect of other major European leagues returning. They appear close to doing so.

Premier League clubs have agreed to reintroduce contact training, while Serie A are set to do the same. Both leagues are likely to return within the next two or three weeks.

La Liga already have a fixture list in place, and it is a sight for sore eyes. Abandoning the traditional weekend slots, the Spanish top flight is set to play fixtures every single day for over a month.

Marca are reporting that La Liga have been given permission by the Spanish Football Federation (RFEF) to play matches on every day of the week, resulting in 32 days consecutive days of fixtures.

Thursday the 11th of June will mark the return of the league, with the Seville derby between Seville and Real Betis taking place that evening. What follows that will be a 32-day feast of football, with every club set to have all but two games played by July 12th.

There will then be two final rounds of fixtures played on July 15th and 19th, meaning the teams will have played 11 fixtures in just over a month. The scheduling of games is set to be released later today.

The full provisional list of fixtures provided by Marca can be viewed here.

This is an ambitious plan for La Liga and a hugely exciting one for football fans. After being starved of games for a number of weeks, there will be no shortage of football to keep us entertained for the foreseeable future.

Many have said that the current situation was the ideal opportunity for leagues to experiment with abandoning the traditional slots for games, with the Premier League looking at playing all ten fixtures in each round of games at different time upon its return.
