Serie A decide on May 28 but resume training

If a player tests positive he will be quarantined for two weeks, while the team will be placed in isolation, and monitored, but can continue to train together.

FIGC president Gravina welcomed a “decisive step on the path of restarting football in Italy”.

Gravina said that FIGC Medical Scientific Commission were now working on the protocol for the return to competition.

The Italian season has been on hold since March 9 amid the pandemic which has killed more than 32 000 people in Italy.

Serie A teams have been training individually since May 4, with a government decree suspending all competition until June 14.

Italian players’ union president Damiano Tommasi said Tuesday that footballers would need at least a month training before returning to competition.

“Even if some talk about six, at least four weeks would be needed to avoid injuries,” said the former Italy and Roma midfielder.

“Caution comes first because at this point you need real certainties from a medical and health point of view.”
