With luck, LaLiga will be able to go back to finals of March or beginnings of April, but the reality to day of today is that the Spanish championship is suspended and that anybody knows to exact science if it will be able to go back to contest with normality. The coronavirus has caused that the sport stop of the all​ not to follow propagating an illness that is causing a lot of problems in the Spanish society, European and world-wide.

This suspension supposes the fourth time in which the domestic competition of Spain sees forced to stop. Nevertheless, it is in the first occasion in which it is a pandemia the one who forces to that paralyse everything. The first time in which it occurred was by fault of the Civil War in the 1936, whereas the others times were always by strikes of the players demanding more right.

After the championship of League that harvested the Athletic in the 1936, LaLiga had to throw the persiana by fault of the terrible war in which it went in Spain between this year and the 1939. During these three years, the football did not go through the stadiums of all the country and was not until the national edict did with the victory when the fields went back to fill and the competition returned to this country.

In the 1979, the footballers, fed up of the labour conditions of this period, decided to put in strike. The Association of Spanish Footballers, the AFE, promoted all this movement in a very moved Spain in full Democratic Transition. Hardly a pair of years afterwards arrived another stop more by another strike demanding again better conditions. The first day of the season 1981/1982 did not contest by this and in the second played the juvenile to protest against the competition.

This same course, in April the AFE summoned another strike in the final stretch, but this time did not succeed. In the 1984, only two campaigns afterwards, a new strike carried again to the clubs to range to his juvenile and even interested to protest by the rights of television and of image. The first and the second day contested with the canteranos already mentioned, but the third not even played by a dictamen of the general director of Work, that ensured that put to juvenile and fans was not possible. In the fourth already went back LaLiga with normality.

The last stop was in the 2011

More recently, in the course 2011/2012, the AFE went back to stop by a brush with the League of Professional Football by the collective agreement. The decision was not playing the first day of this League to put pressure to the competition. After the negotiation, at the end all solved and the second week of parties played without any problem. This championship carried it to him, by the way, the Real Madrid.
