If the La Liga season is cut short or abandoned due to the coronavirus pandemic, the four teams on top of the most recent completed round of standings will qualify for next season’s Champions League, the Spanish Football Association (RFEF) said.With all teams having played 27 matches before the RFEF suspended play on March 12 due to the outbreak of the novel coronavirus, Barcelona, Real Madrid, Sevilla and Real Sociedad are the four teams that will go through to Europe’s premier club competition if no more action is possible this season.“The RFEF wants to have done its homework in case, in the event of a suspension of competitions, it receives the request from UEFA regarding the Spanish clubs that would have access to European competitions next season,” RFEF general secretary Andreu Camps said in a statement on Thursday.“Thus… it has been agreed in the RFEF Delegate Commission to make a plan in order to give certainty in an extreme scenario, such as not being able to finish the competitions, so that all the clubs know the new scenario they are facing.”After the last round of games were completed on March 10, Barcelona topped La Liga with 58 points, two ahead of Real Madrid. Sevilla are third on 47, with Real Sociedad a point further back in fourth.The teams in fifth and sixth place – which are currently Getafe and Atletico Madrid – will also qualify for the Europa League.The result of the Copa Del Rey final, if that is contested, could impact which team grabs the final Europa League spot.With Copa Del Rey finalists Real Sociedad already in the top four, their opponents Athletic Bilbao (10th in the league) are in pole position for the third Europa League spot unless they have climbed into the top six by the time the final league standings are decided.Should that occur, the final Europa League spot will go to the seventh-placed team in La Liga.
Registration for the 2016/17 national handball league has begun in five counties, according to a release from the Liberia National Handball Association (LNHA).The counties are Montserrado, Grand Bassa, Margibi, Bomi and Grand Cape Mount.“Registration started on March 1 to end on 31st and the league will officially start on Friday, April 22 in locations in those five counties,” the release said.The tournament will be in both male and female divisions and the concentration is in schools, the release said, “We want to play handball in every county and not only in Monrovia.”According to the release registration fees are Ld2,000 for both male and female elementary school teams; Ld3,000 for both male and female teams in each junior high school and Ld5,000 for both male and female teams in each senior high school.“We encourage all schools that have received our registration forms to complete them and get them back to us,” the release, signed by Secretary General J. Othello Gaye, said.Meanwhile, there will be a handball seminar, described as Handball@School course this year and it will be staged in three different venues and each venue will last for three days.According to a letter from the International Handball Federation (IHF) in Switzerland, the Liberia National Handball Association (LNHA) should select appropriate date after April to conclude official arrangement and approval for the seminar.The LNHA originally selected March 21-26 or June 2-7 which the IHF says are busy schedules for its experts and therefore dates beyond June are preferable.Share this:Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)

The 10-story Romanesque-designed hall, with a vaulted arch in the lobby, was built for veterans in 1926 and is home to military memorabilia, artifacts and documents from the American Revolution through the recent Middle East wars. But in recent years the familiar sight has begun to crumble, said Chief Administrative Officer David Janssen. “This is an issue we have struggled with for seven or eight years. The boilers, the elevators, the electrical systems, the infrastructure of the building is slowly collapsing,” he said. “It … has never been renovated. They also have a serious parking problem.” The 115,000-square-foot hall, listed on the California Register of Historical Resources and eligible for the National Register of Historic Places, houses the county Department of Military and Veterans Affairs. Originally, veterans of the Grand Army of the Republic, Indian Wars, Spanish American War and World War I used the facility, which was designed by the Allied Architects Association. Los Angeles County supervisors on Tuesday approved preliminary renovation work for the 80-year-old landmark Bob Hope Patriotic Hall downtown, but balked at approving the full $43 million project. The supervisors voted 4-0 to spend $165,000 for architectural and engineering services, but delayed transferring money from the general fund to pay for the entire overhaul and a 400-space parking structure. “This is an awful lot of money for something that just came out of left field,” Supervisor Zev Yaroslavsky said. “We haven’t spent ($43) million to fix a building since I’ve been here – and we have a lot of buildings to fix. “I’m not prepared to appropriate ($43) million in general-fund dollars to fix this building without a careful analysis of the costs and without looking at alternative funding measures. Just because this year we have the money, next year we may not.” AD Quality Auto 360p 720p 1080p Top articles1/5READ MOREThe joys and headaches of holiday travel: John Phillips Over the years, the building has deteriorated and its mechanical, electrical, heating, cooling, ventilation, plumbing, fire suppression and telecommunications systems are failing. The parking lot has only 100 spaces. Supervisors directed Janssen to prepare reports on the renovation’s environmental impacts and the impacts of temporarily relocating hall occupants to county-owned office space on Grand Avenue. Final plans for refurbishment are expected in late 2007. The renovation, if approved, could be completed by late 2009. “A lot of this involves seismic safety,” said David Sommers, spokesman for Supervisor Don Knabe. “It’s a registered landmark that has served the veterans’ community in the Los Angeles region for decades. “Much of this work is to bring it up to code … so Patriotic Hall will be in a position to serve the veterans’ community for decades to come.” But Yaroslavsky said he wants to know if renovation costs can be reduced and if any grants are available to help fund it. “This could end up being a $100 million project,” Yaroslavsky said. “I’m not sure we want to spend $100 million to fix this building.” Supervisors expect to receive a report in four to six months providing a more accurate estimate of the project’s cost as well as funding alternatives. email@example.com (213) 974-8985160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.

I like to get around the park and I can put myself about a bit as well.“I’ve played a lot of games for my age and I feel now is the right time to step up and I’m ready to challenge myself here.” Callachan has spent his entire career so far at Stark’s Park, making his debut in 2010 after graduating from the youth system.He has been a regular this season and scored his only goal of the campaign so far in the Challenge Cup win over Brora Rangers last week.
