As the Coronavirus continues to make life difficult in Italy, and all over the world, it is likely that Serie A will be suspended for almost a month. In fact, the solution to play behind closed doors hasn’t been good enough.
Even before the remainder of the 26th round kicked off this past weekend, the Footballers Association wanted the games to be postponed. Just a few hours later, Italy’s Minister of Sport endorsed this and now CONI have done the same.
According to La Repubblica (via MilanNews.it), there are three scenarios in case of a suspension, with a meeting scheduled for tomorrow to decide the matter. Take a look at the options below, which one do you think is the best?
1. The season would end later and the Euros would take place closer to the autumn, or possibly even next summer.
2. Move forward with a busy schedule of games every 2-3 days. The Coppa Italia could even be postponed to the end of August.
3. Total block of the season. Then it would be up to the FIGC to decide the final standings, assigning just the European spots and not the rest of the positions. Furthermore, the first two from Serie B could be promoted and league would rise to 22 teams.
