Barca win women’s title as Spanish non-professional leagues declared over

Barcelona’s women’s team were officially declared champions of Spain’s Liga Iberdrola on Friday after the national soccer federation’s executive committee agreed to end all non-professional competitions due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The federation said in a statement that the committee had ratified all decisions made by the organization on Wednesday, which also meant there would be no relegation from the women’s top-flight or the second and third tiers of the men’s game.

Atletico will join Barca in next season’s Champions League while Valencia and Espanyol, who occupied the two relegation places when the season was paused, will be spared being demoted.

Two teams will go up from the second tier, meaning the top-flight will have 18 teams instead of the current 16 next year.

While the non-professional competitions have come to an end, Spain’s top two divisions are expected to resume in June, with a number of clubs returning to individual training on Friday for the first time in two months.
