While the Lega Pro considers play-offs and play-outs, Lega Serie B President Mauro Balata confirms the resumption of Italy’s second division from June 20.
Last day the medical protocol for matches was accepted, permitting Sports Minister Vincenzo Spadafora to provide the all-clear for a resume to the ground.
“Serie B will restart from June 20, as we had already deliberated the date and now there is the OK from the Government, for which we thank Minister Spadafora,” Lega Serie B chief Balata told news agency ANSA.
“Starting up again is a wonderful thing.”
There are also talks that the officials step into demands from Lega Pro / Serie C to end the regular term early because most clubs are not ready to cover the medical procedure.
Instead, they will only be qualified to play the outstanding play-offs and knock-outs, thereby making the promotion and relegation cycle fairer.
The group winners were due to be promoted anyway, with the play-off winner going to the fourth spot in Series B.
