An agreement has been made by the committee for the Spanish Football Federation and La Liga to postpone the Spanish football league and all professional football until further notice. La Liga will be postponed beyond the initial two-week period originally proposed, owing to COVID-19.

The official statement read as follows:

The Monitoring Commission established by the current RFEF-LaLiga Coordination Agreement AGREES the suspension of professional football competitions until the authorities of the Government of Spain and the General Administration of the State consider that they can be resumed without creating any health risk.

Both the RFEF and LaLiga wish to express our greatest public gratitude to all those who are dedicating their best efforts to provide essential services to the Spanish people and also share our condolences for all the deceased and a warm embrace from the world of football to the many families that are losing loved ones.
