first_imgPresident of the Spanish League Javier Tebas,has hinted that Spanish football risks losing a whooping £880million should the coronavirus pandemic make it impossible to play out the season. European leagues, in conjunction with UEFA, according to him were currently studying three possible scenarios of return starting on May 28, June 6, or June 28. REal Madrid versus Barcelona one of the mouth watering ties of the la liga The first scenario would see LaLiga playing through June and UEFA competitions taking place in July. The second would see LaLiga and European competitions returning on June 6 and being played together until the end of July. In the third scenario LaLiga would restart on June 28 and play through July with European competitions starting in August. He said: ‘Including money from European competition we are talking about Spanish clubs losing approximately 1 billion euros if we don’t get back to playing [this season].Advertisement ‘It would be £265m if we have to play all the games behind closed doors; and £133m playing with fans because of losses already incurred.’ Pushed on how competitions would be finalised if no more games could be played he added: ‘I only think about that in my nightmares. It’s a sterile debate right now. We will only start this debate if we know that we cannot restart the season. None of the big leagues should be thinking about this right now.’ Tebas said the restart would almost definitely be without spectators.
