When does LaLiga 2020/21 start?
As the coronavirus pandemic has delayed the end of the season that finally ended on Sunday, July 19, the new event will begin in September, for the first time since the 2000-01 campaign. Specifically, this will be the 12th weekend of the ninth month of this year, as announced by the president of the LFP, Javier Tebas, in May of last year.
“The next season will start on September 12, we can't later. If there are Spanish teams qualified for the semi-finals of the Champions or Europa League, they would start up to 15 days later. We will do a Christmas day, "Tebas explained in Onda Cero.
