Italy’s Serie A further extends its campaign suspension, adding one day from its previous agreement (June 13), now it is expected for the league to resume on June 14 or earlier in case the Italian government decides for the go signal to resume a day earlier as planned.
Italian football federation announced on Monday, a day after a government decree banning sports until June 14, that it was complying.
The FIGC announced that “pending any further and desirable decision by the competent authority” its competitions will remain suspended until that date.
Serie A has been silent from its games since March 9, wherein the government announced having a nationwide lockdown.
There are 12 rounds remaining in Serie A, with the additional four matches postponed in the 25th round. Also, the Italian Cup is in the semifinal stage.
Italian clubs resumed individual training on May 4 when lockdown measures across the country started to ease. They were slated to return to team training on Monday yet they have not been given approval to do so by the Italian government’s science panel.
The medical protocol for the resumption of Serie A has proved contentious, but a revised document was delivered to Sports Minister Vincenzo Spadafora on Sunday and the science panel is expected to give its judgement within this week.
