Serie A clubs will be able to resume training as a group starting from this coming Monday having now been given the green light by Italian government minister for sport and youth policies Vincenzo Spadafora.

Speaking in the Italian government chamber of deputies earlier on today Spadafora said: “I received a letter from the president of the FIGC Gabriele Gravina, in which he announced that the FIGC has accepted all the observations of the Technical Scientific Committee, readjusting the protocol which means, without other difficulties, team training can resume from May 18.”

The 2019/20 Serie A season has been on hold for over two months now due to the ongoing global Coronavirus pandemic, the worst of which has now passed in Italy, and a provisional date for the season to resume has been set with that date being June 13.

Teams will play every three or four days to finish the remainder of the campaign and if all is to go to plan it will mean that the season will finish on Sunday August 2.

It does however remain to be seen what will happen with next season given new seasons tend to begin in the last week of August.
