Spain’s soccer federation opposes shorter game interval

The Spanish soccer federation says it will not accept having teams play games less than 72 hours apart when competitions resume following the coronavirus pandemic.

The federation says it opposes an alleged agreement between Spain’s players’ association and the Spanish league to play matches 48 hours apart in order to get the disrupted season completed.

The federation says the players’ health should be above everything else.

The Spanish league and the players’ association say they never had such an agreement. The players’ association also criticized the federation’s stance that player contracts should be extended past the normal expiry date of June 30
