Serie A group training sessions to start again as medical protocol is approved

Minister for Sport Vincenzo Spadafora, speaking to Rai 2, has announced that the Italian FA’s revised medical protocol regarding training sessions has been accepted by the ministry’s committee.

The document had been a major point of discussion between Italy’s sporting authorities in the past few weeks, and was seen as the major obstacle to football competition resuming in the country. The amendments to the protocol include regular testing on players, and will avoid the two-week training centre quarantine proposed for squads resuming play.

Spadafora has also announced that a meeting will be held on the 28th of May with the presidents of both the FA and the Lega Serie A, confirming that they will work to see if the league season can be played out.
