Following a statement from Italy’s Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte, the Serie A and other sporting events in the country will remain suspended until June 14.

The Serie A might have suffered a slight setback in their plans to resume the current season.

Play has been halted in the country for almost two months and there were already laid down plans to resume on the 13th of June.

The likes of the Premier League and La Liga recently approved group training and the Serie A were hoping to follow suit today.

However, the statement from the Prime Minister more or less meant that approval would have to wait for some time.

As per SportsMediaSet, the key highlight from the Prime Minister’s announcement read: “Sporting events and competitions of all kinds and disciplines are suspended, in public or private places until June 14.”

The new decree might force the FIGC to look for a new date and now puts June 15 as the earliest date possible the Serie A can resume.

The report concludes that the Serie A might be given special permission to resume on the 13th of June or leave them ultimately with the choice of finding a new restart date.
