Italian Sports Minister Spadafra confirmed in an interview that Serie A players only need to be tested 48 hours before the game, not every 4 days.
Prior to this, Serie A players needed to be tested for the virus every 4 days, which was strongly opposed by Serie A president Gravina. However, the Minister of Sports has confirmed that the situation has changed. Spadafra said: “I just notified Chairman Gravina that the Italian Scientific Committee has made a positive assessment of our proposal to reduce testing. I thank them. From Starting today, players only need to be tested 48 hours before the game."
In this regard, Gravina said: "This is another important goal achieved. I want to thank Spadafra and his department. We exchanged and shared a proposal. This proposal is a proposal that the professional football community has been looking forward to for a long time. At present, as long as the fans return to the stadium, football will become complete again. I firmly believe that the cooperation between the various agencies will soon achieve this goal."
