La Liga fixtures expected to be forced behind closed doors until 2021


Mounting speculation across the European media suggests that all La Liga fixtures for the remainder of the calendar year are likely to be played out with zero fan presence.

La Liga postponed

As COVID-19 continues to wreak havoc across the globe, the sporting world has been brought to almost a complete halt.

In a bid to prevent further spread of the virus amongst fans and players alike, the majority of high-profile competitions have postponed until further notice.

In Europe, one of the first tournaments to have announced such measures was La Liga.

On the back of a spike in cases throughout Spain, the RFEF came to the decision to call off Matchdays 28 and 29 of the season on the 12th of March.

This was soon followed by a further announcement, in which the Spanish football authorities confirmed that the 2019/20 La Liga campaign had been postponed indefinitely.

There’s currently no firm confirmation that all Premier League footballers would need to be vaccinated once such treatment has been found.

Former women’s world #1 Amélie Mauresmo has argued: “No vaccine = no tennis.”
