Official: Serie A season to resume from September 19 as Milan face crowded schedule

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan face a compact schedule to start their 2020-21 season as it has been confirmed that Serie A will resume in mid-September.

The Rossoneri will have been wishing that the 2019-20 campaign didn’t have to end, as they secured a Europa League spot thanks to a run of nine wins in 12 – with no defeats – in the period after lockdown.

As a result of their finish though, it means they must enter the Europa League preliminary stages, with the second qualifying round scheduled for September 17.

This evening, Lega Serie A confirmed when the new season will start, stating: “The Lega Council met today at 19.00 (local time) and unanimously resolved that Serie A TIM 2020-21 will start on the weekend of September 19.

“The decision confirms the preference already expressed in the afternoon by the majority of the clubs in a meeting dedicated to this topic.”

Reports are claiming that the Christmas break will run from December 23 to January 3 and that there will be five midweek rounds, in addition to the one after the Christmas break.
