Serie A could resume at the end of May if the newest reports from Italy are correct. Teams can resume training by May 4, and games could be played from 31 May.

Prime Minister of Italy Giuseppe Conte, for now, orderer to extend lockdown of the whole country. Italy will be in lockdown by 3 May, but after that, everything could resume like in normal situations.  

The curve of the COVID19 is flattening, and some stores and businesses are being allowed to re-open. Some factories also work. Reports from La Repubblica tell us Serie A could return at the end of May.

A plan is being worked out by the various clubs and leagues in Italy, with a video conference meeting to discuss the options set for April 21. If training is allowed to resume – initially in small groups – from May 4, that will give them over three weeks to be ready for the 2019-20 season to kick off all over again by May 31.

If Seria A fixtures are about to be played every three days, that would mean that league could be ended at the start of August. That would allow a month for rest and preparation for next season.

But not all issues are worked out yet. Some teams that play in critical areas like Milano teams or Atalanta and Brescia, could need a neutral venue to play on.

All games are expected to play out behind closed doors. There is a suggestion that could see all games played in Rome. The capital of Italy has stayed nearly clear of coronavirus cases, so it would be the safest possible venue.
