The plan is for stadiums to be half full by November and full in January 2021

LaLiga president Javier Tebas has said the plan is for the 2020-21 season to start on Sept. 12 and it's now been revealed the objective is to allow some fans, gradually, back into stadiums when the new campaign kicks off. 

The Spanish league hope the season will start with stadiums 30 percent full, progressing to 50 percent in November, before grounds returning to full capacity at the beginning of January. These plans, of course, are dependent on advice and permission from Spain's Ministry of Health. 

With teams returning to full training on Monday and LaLiga resuming on June 11, thoughts are slowly turning to next season as Spain continues to reduce the coronavirus restrictions in the country.

A few days ago, the Secretary of State for Sport, Irene Lozano, left the door open to fans returning in September when weeks before supporters returning before 2021 without a vaccine had been basically ruled out. 

Tebas said in MARCA on Friday that it will be 2021 "when we recover normality." However, plans are afoot for stadiums to open before then, in a gradual manner.
