Serie A restart suspended until June 15

The Italian league management has announced that the restart of the country's top-flight football league, Serie A, has been suspended until the 15th of June.

This is coming after Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte signed off a decree on Sunday banning "any event and sporting competition of any order and discipline" until June 14.

The Italian Football Federation (FIGC) imitated PM Conte's decree in a statement.

"FIGC takes note of the decisions taken in the May 17 decree [...] and, taken note of the suspension of events and sporting competitions of all order and discipline, in private or public places, until June 14, 2020, [...] has prolonged the suspension of sporting activity until June 14, 2020," an FIGC statement read.

Sky Sports reports that Serie A clubs agreed last week a provisional date of June 13 to resume the league, subject to approval from the Italian government.
