Italy’s Serie A teams have been given the green light to resume group training but will have to wait until May 28 to know whether the season can resume, Sports Minister Vincenzo Spadafora said on Tuesday.
Spadafora told Italian television that government scientists had accepted the Italian football federation’s (FIGC) revised health protocol.
“The Scientific Technical Committee have approved the FIGC protocol for the resumption of team training,” Spadafora told Rai.
“It is excellent news, collective training can now resume.”
Spadafora said he has scheduled a meeting on May 28 with FIGC president Gabriele Gravina and Lega Serie A chief Paolo Dal Pino to decide on the return to competition.
“We will then decide if and when Serie A will restart,” he said. Make cool cash on today’s SRL on NaijaBet
“The important thing will be to restart with the firm intention of completing the championship, then the federations will decide the modalities and formats to be adopted.”
The minister said that a controversial measure of isolating team members for two weeks at club facilities to limit the risk of contagion has been withdrawn.
