"Serie A training will return soon"- Italy's Sports Minister

Italy’s sports minister Vincenzo Spadafora is all set to confirm May 4 as the date when Serie A training will return.

Serie A was suspended last month due to the outbreak of coronavirus pandemic and after that, some matches were played behind the closed doors before the official announcement of the complete shutdown. 

Also, the Italian government has already extended its current restrictions on all kinds of movement and in outdoor activities until May 3.

However, the Italian Football Federation added that “Serie A will not return until the health conditions in Italy don’t improve”.

As the next few weeks will be crucial to understand the evolution of the health care situation and how can we go back and play sports at all levels.

“As of now, we can confirm May 4 is the date when the training will resume. I hope that we can keep that date even if the training resumes behind the closed doors” Spadafora quoted this Goal.com.

In addition to it, he said “At the moment our only concern must be health and safety of the general population”.

Italy has so far recorded 22,100 deaths along with 168,900 confirmed COVID 19 cases.
Due to COVID 19, all the sporting action across the world has come to a halt as all the major leagues like La Liga, Bundesliga and Premier League have been suspended.

Coronavirus has claimed more than 1,45,500 lives globally and that is a daunting number. While the World Health Organization (WHO) had declared this COVID 19 as a pandemic on March 11.
