Football returns in Italy. The 2019/20 season of the Italian Serie A, which has been suspended due to the Coronavirus pandemic, will resume on June 20.
Italian Sports Minister Vincenzo Spadafora made the statement.
“The meeting of the leaders took place in a calm atmosphere. Football is returning to Italy, which should have happened.
If the dynamics of the spread of the virus change and we are forced to stop the season again, the Football Federation has given me a guarantee that they have a plan B, which provides for the continuation of the championship playoffs. There is also a plan C to fix the positions of the teams in the given situation.
As of today, we can say that the series will be resumed on June 20, “said Spadafora.
The Italian Cup also returns
The date of the renewal of the Italian Cup has also been announced. Repeated semi-final matches will be held on June 13 and 14. The final confrontation will take place on June 17.
Recall that in the first legs of the semi-finals of the Italian Cup, Inter lost at home to Napoli with a minimal score (0: 1), while Milan played a draw with Juventus (1: 1) at the “San Siro.”
I will also tell you that together with Serie A, on June 20, Serie B will also be renewed.
