Spanish Clubs to Begin Collective Training on June 1st

Clubs in Spain’s top two divisions can hold full training sessions from Monday for the first time since returning to activity after the action was halted in March due to the coronavirus pandemic.

La Liga said in a statement on Saturday: “Clubs will begin collective training on June 1 after the government’s latest health order on the easing of restrictions,”

Teams returned to individual training at the start of May before progressing to training in groups of up 10 players two weeks later and groups of 14 players from last Monday.

The top flight will resume on June 11, with Sevilla playing Real Betis, behind closed doors, and the season is expected to conclude on July 19.

All organized football in Spain was provisionally suspended on March 12 as the virus ravaged the country, but the rate of infection has slowed significantly.
