Clubs in the Four Serie A could resume training on Monday after Italy’s Emilia-Romgana region relaxed its lockdown rules on Monday.
In addition to reopening parks, gardens and cemeteries to the public, the region has announced that individual sports training sessions may resume.
This could be good news for the top flight clubs Bologna, Parma, Sassuolo and SPL, although the central government may override the regional direction.
In a statement released on its website on Friday, Emilia-Romguna listed local authorities in various ways so they want to lift the coronavirus ban from May 4.
The statement also included the following: “Green light for the individual training of recognized professional and non-professional athletes complying with the rules of social distance by the National Olympic Committee, the Italian Paralympic Committee and their respective federations. Also for athletes in individual sports departments. “
The move by regional governor Stefano Bonaxini represents a significant change in the country severely affected by the global epidemic.
Italy reports that clubs may be barred from welcoming their players on Monday, after the national government’s regional affairs minister, Stefano Boccia, intervened to protest the announcement of the reopening of the Calabria region this week.
Prime Minister Giuseppe Conti announced last weekend that professional sports teams could resume training on May 18th.
Minister of State for Sports Vincenzo Spadafora has urged France and the Netherlands to focus on their strengths next season after abandoning the 2012-20 campaign to become the first high-profile European league.
On Wednesday, Spadaphora said: “I always said that resuming training does not mean restarting the season.”
