Italy's Serie A set to resume matches from June 20th


The Italian government has given the green light for Serie A matches to return after a three-month shutdown from June the 20th. 

It follows a meeting today between the Italian Federation's president, players representatives, medical officials and the country's sports minister Vincenzo Spadafora.

"It was a very useful meeting and, as we had said from the start, football was always going to resume when we had the conditions to ensure safety and the committee gave the go-ahead to the protocol," Spadafora said when leaving the meeting this afternoon.

"Italy is getting back on track and it is only fair that football should too. The committee agreed with the protocol, but confirmed the absolute necessity for a quarantine period if a player tests positive.

"We also received guarantees the process of player testing will not affect or detract from the general population's access to testing in any way."

Serie A will meet tomorrow to discuss the revised schedule but it's expected that the four remaining matches from game-week will form the first week of matches.

Atalanta are set to play Sassuolo, Inter face Sampdoria, Torino will play Parma, and Verona will take on Cagliari.

Pending government approval this weekend, the Coppa Italia semi-final second legs will take place on June 13th with Juventus hosting AC Milan and Napoli taking on Inter Milan. The Cup final has provisionally been pencilled in for the following week with the Serie A season to be completed by the 20th of August.
