La Liga suspended play indefinitely due to the coronavirus pandemic.

The Royal Spanish Football Federation and La Liga decided that the league's previous pause on March 12 would now be indefinite as Spain deals with a greater outbreak of COVID-19. Spain's top flight had originally planned to cancel for two game weeks, then resume without fans in attendance.

"The Monitoring Commission established by the current RFEF-La Liga Coordination Agreement AGREES [to] the suspension of professional football competitions until the authorities of the Government of Spain and the General Administration of the State consider that they can be resumed without creating any health risk," read a statement from the league on Monday.

"Both the RFEF and La Liga wish to express our greatest public gratitude to all those who are dedicating their best efforts to provide essential services to the Spanish people and also share our condolences for all the deceased and a warm embrace from the world of soccer to the many families that are losing loved ones."

Spain reported 30,000 diagnosed cases of coronavirus and a death toll of more than 2,000, with lockdown restrictions tightened Sunday to prevent further spread.

Valencia, which played in Milan near Italy's greatest outbreak, said that one in three of the first-team players contracted the virus. Other clubs are also significantly impacted.
