FIGC release official statement confirming Serie A will not restart before mid-June
By Oliver Fisher -

There will be no resumption of Serie A until at least June 14 after the orders of FIGC president Gabriele Gravina.

A press release was announced recently on the official FIGC website announcing the suspension of sports competitions until 14 June. Unless changed, Serie A will not be able to resume before that date.

The press release reads as follows…

“The Federal President
– having regard to the Official Press Release n. 193 / A of May 4, 2020;
– having regard to the Decree of the President of the Council of Ministers of 17 May 2020 containing “urgent measures to contain the contagion on the whole national territory”;
– having taken note of the suspension until June 14, 2020 of sporting events and competitions of any order and discipline, in public or private places, referred to in the aforementioned Decree;
– having regard to art. 24 of the Federal Statute;
– after hearing the Vice-Presidents
resolves to suspend until 14 June 2020 all football sports competitions organised under the auspices of the FIGC. This resolution will be subject to ratification by the Federal Council at the first useful meeting.”

With Milan’s full squad back in training (with the exception of Franck Kessie), that means that the Rossoneri will be able to train for at least a month before returning to competitive action.

Once a start date is identified, the rest of the calendar will be filled in accordingly, with a number of sources claiming that the Coppa Italia semi-final second legs – Juventus vs. Milan and Napoli vs. Inter – will be the curtain raiser.
