The future of the 2019-2020 La Liga season is in question due to the coronavirus outbreak, with play suspended indefinitely. While it will be some time before the on-field champion is determined, the virtual champion will be decided this weekend.

19 of the 20 teams in the league are taking part in a FIFA 20 tournament hosted by Spanish esports announcer Ibai Llanos on his Twitch channel. Each team will be represented by a player from the team.

Llanos conducted a formal draw to set up the bracket Thursday afternoon. Six of the bottom seven teams (RCD Mallorca is not taking part) are playing in a Friday play-in round. They then advance to a Round of 16 that will take place on Saturday. The quarterfinals will follow, also on Saturday. The semifinals and finals are both set for Sunday.
