RFEF president Luis Rubiales has stated that it is the desire of the organisation to finish the 2019/20 La Liga season before anything else is discussed.
Unlike the Premier League, which will reassess its position at the end of April, La Liga is on an indefinite suspension until the impact of the coronavirus is more fully known.
Spain has overtaken China to be the country that has recorded the second-most deaths so far, behind only Italy. With the number of cases continuing to rise, it seems that a speculative start date of the end of May remains ambitious.
But speaking at a press conference, Rubiales announced that the plan is to finish the 19/20 campaign as teams need to be promoted and relegated 'by right'.
He said: "The priority is to complete the season. We can't just relegate teams now. Teams have to be promoted by right.
"There are hundreds of teams waiting to complete the season. When the country recovers, that will be the moment to complete the current season.
"Let's hope I'm mistaken and that we can play at the start of May. I don't think that'll be possible, but I'd love to be proved wrong, we'll have to extend the calendar.
"The objective is to save this season. That's our idea."
Rubiales is also keen not to push players and teams into action if the country is not ready for it.
He added: "We are working on every scenario possible, but we don't want to play predictor. We have to be very cautious and rigorous.
"We are living an extreme time, with many deaths. We have never put a deadline to restart playing and we will not be doing now. We believe the deadline should be health, integrity and safety.
"Mainly when the country takes back the normal situation."
