The government had requested changes to medical protocols however the ‘ok’ has been given for contact training to resume from May 18.

A statement on the official Lega website confirmed a potential return date as well:

“Regarding the resumption of sporting activity, in accordance with the decisions of the Government and in compliance with the medical protocols to protect players and all involved personnel, the date of June 13 has been indicated for the resumption of the league.

Sixteen Serie A clubs voted in favour of that date during a league assembly today, while the remaining four voted to resume the season the following weekend, on June 20.

Unlike the Bundesliga, the protocol in Italian means that if one player or staff member tests positive for coronavirus after May 18, the entire squad will have to go into quarantine for 15 days.
