RFEF (Spanish FA) president Luis Rubiales spoke to inform media of his organisation's efforts in the coronavirus crisis. He explained the following:

Help for health: “The national team’s hotel is at the disposition of the authorities as a hospital, for health workers to stay in, whatever they need,” Rubiales told a news conference. Our psychologists and physiotherapists are also at the disposition of the health service workers."

Link with Liga: “We want to sit down with La Liga to talk about the problems that some clubs might have. My message is one of union, hope, discipline. All of football, from the modest to the elite, we should send a message of solidarity, together we will stop this virus."

Economic package: Non-professional clubs will get 4 million loan to help pay players and coaches. No interest, two year loan. Up to 500m euros in a line of credit for first and second division clubs, up to five years to pay it back.
