[Serie A won’t resume until coronavirus threat passes] The Lega Serie A assembly meeting took place this afternoon, with all 20 clubs present via video conference. The position that emerged from talks between UEFA, ECA and the European Leagues held yesterday was represented at the meeting. With regards to the possible completion of the remaining Serie A and Coppa Italia matches, Lega Serie A will only consider the resumption of sporting activity when health conditions allow it, adhering, as it has always done, to government decrees and taking into primary consideration the protection of the health of the players and all those involved. In facing the different scenarios, which are still uncertain, Lega Serie A - with the participation of club representatives - will continue to analyse the impact and consequences of Covid-19 on medical, economic, regulatory, sporting and risk-assessment levels for the clubs and Lega Serie A itself in the coming days

[Serie A clubs unanimously agree to cut wages by up to a third amid coronavirus pandemic] In line with actions aimed at decreasing labour costs both in Italy and abroad, Serie A today decided unanimously, with the exception of Juventus who have already reached an agreement with their players, a common line of address to contain the amount represented by the salaries of players, coaches and other first-team staff. This intervention, necessary to safeguard the future of the entire Italian football system, provides for a reduction of one-third in total gross annual earnings (or four average all-inclusive monthly payments) if the season cannot be resumed and a reduction of one-sixth in total gross annual earnings (or two average all-inclusive monthly payments) if the remaining matches of the 2019-20 season can be played in the coming months. It is understood that the clubs will define the agreements with their members of staff directly

[Serie A have also indicated their intention to complete the season] The desire is to end the season and return to play without taking risks, only when health conditions and government decisions allow it

[Italian Footballers’ Association (AIC) rejecting a proposal from Serie A clubs to cut wages by up to a third] The AIC Board of Directors, meeting today for their usual weekly meeting, which was followed by a meeting with the representatives of the Serie A teams, deemed the proposal put forward by Lega Serie A and B to be inadmissible. The behaviour of the leagues is incomprehensible at a time like this. The desire, not so much implied, of wanting to dump on the players, putting them in a bad light, the economic damage resulting from the crisis situation, is a fact that makes you reconsider the entrepreneurial credibility of those who should be ferrying the football system at this difficult time

The resumption of sporting activity, in the so-called Phase 2, as already highlighted in the past, will take place in accordance with the indications of FIFA and UEFA, with the decisions of the FIGC (Italian Football Federation), as well as in compliance with the medical protocols for the protection of footballers and all professionals

[President of the Italian referees’ association (AIA) Marcello Nicchi says officials will return to work in their home cities, and will not travel for games across Italy until it is safe to do so] Caution is needed, the pandemic will dictate the times.

[Italian Players’ Association slam ‘discriminatory and illogical’ training centres ban] The AIC is perplexed and surprised by the government’s decision on resuming sport in Italy. We consider the idea discriminatory and illogical to let individual sporting disciplines enter training grounds, but not professional football – or other team sport – players to undergo individual training in the same way. This rule will, if anything, make the risk even greater rather than contain it! A professional athlete needs this phase of training after such a long break in order to avoid injuries and be ready to start training in groups from May 18. We don’t see how running in a sports arena built for this purpose is less dangerous than running down the street. We hope the government will quickly intervene to eliminate the evident distortions that derive from the application of the decree marked April 26.
