Italian minister for sport and youth policies Vincenzo Spadafora has revealed that at the end of the month a date for when the 2019/20 Serie A season can resume can be given.

The season was put on hold back in March due to the ongoing Coronavirus crisis, the worst of which has since passed in Italy and the Italian government banned all team sports to play until June 14th.

Just hours ago Spadafora claimed that a date could not be given due to the lack of any guarantees, but after the medical protocol the Lega Calcio proposed was passed by the Scientific Committee appointed by the Italian government to deal with the crisis, Spadafora has now revealed the date on which an announcement on when the Serie A season will resume will be made.

“I called a meeting a little while ago, to be held on 28th of May, at 3 pm, with Gravina, Dal Pino and all the other representatives, because I think that by that date we will have all the data to be able to, together with the Government, decide the date for when the season can resume,” he explained whilst speaking in an interview with Italian broadcaster Rai 2 show ‘TGSport’ earlier this evening.

Spadafora was then asked about the prospect of the remainder of the Serie A season being decided by a series of playoffs.

“The format will be decided by the federations, the important thing is to resume the season. Any solution can be valid to end the season.”
