Italy's Serie A can resume on 20 June after a three-month absence in a country hit hard by the coronavirus pandemic, sports Minister Vincenzo Spadafora said on Thursday.

"The Technical and Scientific Committee gave its agreement on the protocol and the federation assured me that it had a plan B and a plan C," Spadafora said after a meeting with Italian football chiefs.

"In the light of these considerations, the championship can resume on June 20."

No top-flight matches have been played since Sassuolo beat Brescia 3-0 on 9 March, before the championship was suspended by a pandemic which has killed over 33,000 people in Italy.
