La Liga fans might be having this weekend without a game due to the high intensity of the heat wave, according to reports.
Spanish League president Javier Tebas is planning to postpone the coming game week fixtures as he revealed that this intense heat can affect players’ health.
Tebas told radio Cope earlier today that “football cannot be played at 36 or 37 degrees Celsius (96 or 98 Fahrenheit).”
The weather forecasters have precdicted that the temperature will remain same in the whole week, mid-30s Celsius (86 Fahrenheit).
Further this issue might not postpone all the games, some games can be played at night as there will be less effect of the heat.
The highest temperature noted across Spain this week is 40 degrees Celsius (104 degrees Fahrenheit).
Furthermore, referees have been told to allow players to drink as much water as they want to avoid dehydration.
The La Liga game week 3 brings Celta Vigo vs Atletico Madrid, Real Madrid vs Osasuna, Barcelona vs Alaves, Real Sociedad vs Espanyol and many more.
The final decision is yet to be announced regarding these fixtures, whether they all will be played at night or might be shifted to midweek.
