La Liga president Tebas has said holding matches on Fridays and Mondays satisfies broadcasters, while federation chief Rubiales has said holding late night matches on working days is unfair on supporters wishing to attend games

Spanish football body La Liga has rescheduled four matches in the top two divisions for the second week in a row and criticized the national federation (RFEF) over its ban on games on Mondays and Fridays.

A statement from La Liga Wednesday confirmed that Friday’s game between Getafe and Osasuna had been moved to Saturday, with Real Betis v Real Valladolid being pushed forward from Monday to Sunday.

The changes also affected matches in the second division, with Castellon v Malaga moving from Friday to Saturday, and Cartagena v Sporting Gijon going from Monday to Sunday.

La Liga, which is responsible for compiling fixtures, had set games in the new season’s opening round of matches in both leagues for Friday and Monday but had to reschedule them after a RFEF judge ruled matches could not take place on those days, referring to a commercial court ruling in 2019.

An appeal against that ruling will be heard on Oct. 6.

La Liga president Javier Tebas has said holding matches on Fridays and Mondays satisfies broadcasters, while federation chief Luis Rubiales has said holding late night matches on working days is unfair on supporters wishing to attend games.
