Sports Minister Vincenzo Spadafora gave Serie A the green light to resume after a meeting with Italian football authorities on Thursday.

A medical protocol for matches was approved by a technical scientific committee earlier.

Spadafora says Serie A will restart on June 20 but the Italian Cup semifinals and the final could be played on June 13 and 17.

Serie A has been suspended since March 9, when the government ordered a nationwide lockdown because of the coronavirus pandemic.

There are 12 rounds remaining in Serie A, plus four matches that were postponed from the 25th round.
