Italy’s sports Minister Vincenzo Spadafora announced on Thursday, that Italy’s Serie A can resume on June 20, after a 3-month suspension due to the covid-19 pandemic.
Spadafora stated that Italian Cup semi-final matches, between Inter Milan and Napoli and AC Milan and Juventus, could be played the week before the championship returned.
The announcement of the resumption of the Italian league comes just after the English Premier League confirmed it will restart on June 17.
Among the five major European championships, only the French Ligue 1 has been definitively stopped.
The German championship has already resumed and Spain’s La Liga will return to the pitch the week of June 11.
