Barcelona will resume their La Liga title defence against Real Mallorca following the coronavirus shutdown.
The Spanish top-flight football season will restart on June 11 with the derby between Sevilla and Real Betis, La Liga confirmed on Sunday.
Football was suspended in Spain on 12 March but Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez has said it can restart.
The first round of games following the coronavirus shutdown will be played over four days, with leaders Barcelona at Mallorca on June 13 and Real Madrid at 购彩信誉平台 to Eibar the next day.
The following matchday will run from Monday, June 15 to Thursday, June 18.
Barcelona will host Leganes on June 16 while Madrid take on Valencia in the capital two days later.
The Spanish Sports Council released a statement on Friday saying that the Spanish Football Federation (RFEF) and La Liga had agreed the format for the 11 remaining rounds in the top two Spanish divisions.
La Liga said the season should be completed by July 19.
“We want next season to start September 12,” La Liga president Javier Tebas told Movistar.
“We have designed the schedule to give each team at least 72 hours of rest between matches... We will update the schedule two matchdays at a time to take into account the weather conditions, which are known two weeks in advance.”
Barcelona led Real Madrid by two points at the top of the table when the season was halted in March.
Weekday matches will kick off at 18:30 and 21:00, while weekend games will begin at 16:00, 18:30 and 21:00, with an extra slot at 12:00 if it is not too hot.
Applause from fans across the world will be played in stadiums in the 20th minute of matches to “show support for the heroes of the COVID-19 pandemic”, Tebas said.
Training resumes
Meanwhile on Monday, La Liga clubs returned to full training for the first time in almost three months as Real Madrid and Barcelona stepped up preparations ahead of the season restarting on June 11.
It has been 82 days since the Spanish top-flight suspended fixtures due to the coronavirus pandemic and teams will have only 10 days training all together before competitive games resume.
A staggered programme allowed players to return to training grounds for individual work on May 4 before clubs were given permission to train in groups of up to 10 on May 18 and then 14 a few days later.
Barcelona and Madrid were among those to begin full sessions on Monday as the two rivals get set to renew their title tussle, which has Barca sitting two points clear at the top of the table with 11 games left to play.
Zinedine Zidane oversaw Real’s session, in which “the players completed a very physical first part and continued with individual and group exercises with the ball and goals,” said a statement by the club.
La Liga’s plan is for games to take place every day across five weeks, with the season ending on July 19.
