LaLiga and Spanish football federation will pay tribute before each match to the countrymen who have lost their lives due to COVID-19 infection during the top flight professional league, which is scheduled to start from Thursday, June 11.
The Royal Spanish Football Federation (RFEF) and LaLiga have announced that a minute’s silence will be observed before matches in all professional and amateur competitions in Spain when the season restarts. The ritual will be followed in memory of the thousands of people who have lost their lives to COVID-19.
Both organisations have reached an agreement to pay tribute during the remainder of the current campaign to all the people who have sadly passed away during the pandemic, as well as to their families.
Starting on Wednesday with the meeting of Rayo Vallecano and Albacete BP, and as will be the case before all other LaLiga Santander and LaLiga SmartBank fixtures and the promotion playoffs to reach LaLiga Santander, LaLiga SmartBank and Segunda Division B, the football world will remember those who are no longer with us through a minute’s silence prior to every game.
The novel coronavirus has infected over 2.88 lakh people in Spain, resulting in the loss of more than 27,000 human lives.
