LaLiga clubs are returning to training this week, after approval by the Spanish Ministry of Health for the return of sports training sessions.
According to the Return to Training Protocol that LaLiga developed with medical specialists, professional players from LaLiga Santander and LaLiga SmartBank – the first and second divisions of professional football in Spain – will start training alone after medical examinations carried out by the club team .
This return to training was planned by LaLiga with measures agreed with the relevant sports and health authorities, in order to ensure the maximum possible safety for the health of all involved.
These measures cover a period of approximately four weeks, with different phases that, in any case, will be subject to the de-escalation process established by the government.
Thus, along with the medical examinations carried out by the clubs, a staggered return to training was implemented, which will begin with the training of the players alone and end with the group activities prior to the return to competitions, scheduled for June.
Professional footballers returning to work go hand in hand with the recovery of a very significant economic sector, which accounts for 1.37% of Spain's GDP and creates 185,000 jobs. It is at this point that the country's economic situation is now the main concern, precipitated by the health crisis.
“This crisis had a profound impact on all of us. The return of football is a sign that society is progressing towards the new normality. It will also bring back an element of life that people in Spain and around the world know and love, ”said Javier Tebas, president of LaLiga.
“People's health is critical, so we have a comprehensive protocol to protect the health of everyone involved as we work to restart LaLiga. The circumstances are unprecedented, but we hope to start playing again in June and end our 19/20 season this summer. "
