MADRID -- La Liga has provisionally elected Javier Tebas to a second four-year term as president.
Tebas ran unopposed after Alex Aranzabal ended his proposed candidacy on Tuesday, a day before the deadline for candidates to register.
The Spanish league is composed of 42 first- and second-division teams in Spain.
La Liga said on Wednesday that Tebas will be officially confirmed as president on Oct. 11.
The 54-year-old Tebas is a lawyer. He was first elected league president in 2013, running unopposed.
