Italy is hoping to test footballers for coronavirus in May 2020 before the restart of football activities.
This is according to the Italian Football Federation.
President of the Italian Football Federation, Gabriele Gravina, in an interview with Sky Sports Italia, says “As soon as the conditions are right, we’ll finish the championship.”
Italy is one of the worst-hit nations as far as Covid-19 is concerned.
Italy’s top league, the Serie A was grounded on March 9, 2020 due to the outbreak.
There are still 12 full rounds and four outstanding fixtures to play for the 2019/2020 season.
According to the Federation President, “Soon, there will be a meeting. We will establish the procedure which we will then communicate.”
“We will start, I hope, at the beginning of May with tests to ensure that players are negative and training can follow.”
“Will we play through the summer? We don’t have a deadline but the idea is to finish the championships.”
A number of players in Serbia A have already tested positive to coronavirus.
