Series A will be the fourth largest five national leagues in Europe to resume after the German League, which resumed on May 16, the Spanish League, and the Premier League, which will also be launched in June.

Italian Sports Minister Vincenzo Spadafora said on Thursday that the Serie A club has received approval to resume on June 20 after the new corona strike.

He added that there was a possibility that the resumption of the season, which was suspended on March 9, would precede the Italian Cup matches a week ago. Series B coach said that Layer 2 also hopes to restart on June 20.

"Italy has started again and it is true that football can continue as well," Spadafora told reporters after a conference call with the Italian Football Federation.

Serie A gets green light for June 20 restart

Series A will be the fourth largest five national leagues in Europe to resume after the German League, which resumed on May 16, the Spanish League and the Premier League, which will also be launched in June.

The French League ended last season in Paris St-Germain, who holds the French first division title with 10 games remaining.

Spadafora said the Italian government has agreed to the health and safety measures proposed by FIGC in addition to a backup plan in case the league stops again. "In light of this, we can say that the tournament can start again on June 20," he said.

The decision ended with two winding months of negotiations during which emotions rushed with Spadafora in one stage complaining about the millionaire wages paid to players and says that first-class clubs live in a bubble.

"An exceptional period full of obstacles and pressures has passed, with steadiness, determination and spirit of service," said Paolo Dal Pino, President of the Serie A.

"For the Italian league, the future must mean a return to being the most beautiful championship in the world."
