Serie A return date confirmed as Italian Prime Minister relaxes coronavirus rules 1

Italian Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte has confirmed that Serie A teams can return to training on May 18 with matches set to resumed on June 2 as coronavirus rules across the country are being relaxed.

Next week will be the final week in which Italy is subject to strict lockdown procedures.

From May 4 social distancing guidelines will be eased as they attempt to return life to some form of normality.

Italy was the European epicentre of the coronavirus outbreak and signs that they are on the bend will be a big boost to Britain and the Premier League.

It is thought the UK is just two or three weeks behind Italy in terms of the death toll and infection rates.

Conte said: “You have all shown strength, courage, sense of responsibility and community.

“Now the phase of living with the virus begins for everyone and we must be aware that during Phase Two, there is the risk we’ll see the curve climb in some areas of the country.

“It’ll be even more important to maintain social distancing, at least one metre.

“Even when seeing family, we must still maintain this precaution, because the scientists tell us that at least one out of four infections come via family members.

“If we do not respect social distancing, the curve will climb again, so will the number of deaths, and we will have irreversible damage to our economy.

Arsenal will open their Colney training complex for players to use on an individual basis from Monday.

The Gunners are the first team in the UK to take such measures.

All of the buildings will remain locked but the outside training facilities will be made available.
