Liga president Javier Tebas said on Wednesday he believed some fans could be allowed to return to the stadiums in Spain’s top two divisions in April.
“It’s been a year, we’ve learned a lot, and we hope that by the third week of April we are able to start to have a percentage again within the stadiums,” Tebas advised a press breakfast, including “if circumstances allow”.
Spain has suffered more than three million COVID-19 cases and 72,565 deaths however the infection rate has stabilised heading towards Holy Week when Spaniards historically take holidays.
Easter Sunday falls on April 4 this year.
“Everyone is cautiously watching Easter, a key moment to see how issues are going,” mentioned Tebas, including that it could provide an indication of whether fans may return.
“We all hope that after Easter we are able to set a fast date.
Tebas was echoing a sentiment expressed by Irene Lozano, the Spanish Secretary of State for Sports who stated recently: “If we see that a fourth wave has not started, we can start to lift crucial questions for fans, supporters and the clubs themselves.”
