The Italian Serie A and English Premier League will resume on June 20 and June 17 respectively after a decisive meeting among top officials.

BREAKING: Serie A cleared to return on June 20, Premier League, June 17

Italian Serie A resumption date was confirmed after a short and decisive

conference meeting featuring Italian sports minister Vincenzo Spadafora, the Lega

Serie A and Italian Football Federation presidents, and representatives from the

Players’ Association and the Association of Italian Sports Medics.

Serie A was the first of Europe’s major leagues to be affected by the coronavirus

pandemic, with games postponed and played behind closed doors before the league was halted completely.

Also, the English Premier League football is poised to return after a three-month

shutdown, with top-flight games in England provisionally set to resume on Wednesday, June 17.

The Premier League was suspended on March 13 due to the coronavirus

pandemic and will return on the scheduled date with two rearranged matches,

Aston Villa vs Sheffield United and Manchester City v Arsenal set

to be played first, before the first full round of games on the weekend of June 20 and 21.

Premier League Shareholders also voted unanimously to resume contact training on

Wednesday, May 27, marking another step towards restarting the Premier League season.

Squads are now training as a group and engage in tackling while minimising any unnecessary close contact with fans set for an intriguing finale.
