Serie A clubs will start team training from May 18

Serie A clubs of Italy will be allowed to start team training from May 18, the government said on Monday in a boost for plans to resume the season.

Italy’s minister for sport Vincenzo Spadafora has given the green light for Serie A clubs to resume group training sessions from Monday, May 18.

The government said its technical-scientific committee had conducted a close examination of the protocol which the Italian football federation (FIGC) plans to implement to ensure training can be conducted safely.

The clubs were allowed to resume training last Monday but only on an individual basis and respecting social distancing rules.

Footballers returned to individual training on May 4, but now another step is set to be taken.

“The committee’s indications, which are to be considered stringent and binding, will be sent to the FIGC for the necessary adjustments to the protocol so as to allow the safe resumption of team training from 18 May,” said a joint statement issued by Spadafora and health minister Roberto Speranza on Monday.

Serie A was suspended 2 months ago, since March 9 and the government has yet to decide if it will allow the season to be completed.

Meanwhile, a Belarusian Premier League match – as well as a game in the country’s second-tier division – have been postponed due to suspected COVID-19 cases, the domestic football federation said on Monday.

Belarus was the only country in Europe playing football amid the pandemic.

The federation said that the top-flight game between FC Minsk and Neman Grodno, scheduled to take place on May 15, has been called off due to suspected COVID-19 cases among the home team’s players.

New dates for the games were not announced.
