Series A and FIGC Submit New Health Protocol for Government Approval


The Lega Serie A and the federation have been engaged in talks this morning to decide on a list of amendments and have achieved a positive outcome.

They recorded a successful meeting, by stating, “There was a general agreement on the final proposals, formulated to ensure safe resumption of ground training, which will be promptly submitted to the Minister for Sport and Youth Policies, the Minister of Health and the scientific committee.”

That is, FIGC and Series A have agreed on a new health protocol to be ‘promptly submitted’ to the Italian Government.

Top-flight sides have been asking for no group isolation in the event of a positive test, the abolition of quarantine camps and no legal liability for medics say Football Italia. Now, Series A have devised a resolution.

“A meeting was held this morning, in an atmosphere of active collaboration, between the FIGC, Lega Serie A, President of the FMSI [Federation of Italian Medics] Maurizio Casasco and the representative of Serie A doctors, Gianni Nanni,” the amendment read. “The points of the protocol that were difficult to implement were analysed, and some additions have been drawn constructively up to resolve the objective problems.”

Group training was all set to begin on Monday, but clubs withdrew from the original plan because it forced them to go to a quarantine camp for two weeks if one of their players tested positive for coronavirus.
