La Liga forced to reschedule games after a dispute
The schedule of Spanish La Liga has changed before the start of the new season. The schedule has been changed due to a long-running dispute with the Spanish Football Federation.
The league will start the next day instead of Friday due to a dispute between the Spanish Football Federation (RFEF) and La Liga authorities. RFEF has won this dispute. The Friday and Monday matches on the previous schedule have been changed. According to the previously announced schedule, the La Liga 2020-21 season was to start from Friday.
La Liga president Javier Tevez argues that holding matches on Fridays and Mondays increases TV viewership and increases revenue from broadcasting. But federation president Luis Rubiales Saf said it was difficult for spectators to get on the field these days.
Although now visitors have restrictions on access. However, due to the federation, the schedule has changed. Friday and Monday matches have been dropped not only from the first week's schedule, but from the entire event schedule.
