Italian Report Claims Current Standings Would Be Final In Serie A If Season Is Cancelled

After initial optimism over the possible resumption of the season, clubs are growing more and more pessimistic about the possibility of the season resuming according to a report in today’s print edition of Gazzetta dello Sport.

Earlier this month Serie A, alongside all sporting activity in Italy, was put on hold by the Italian government until at least April 3 and the country was also placed on lock down due to the global Coronavirus crisis.

In the best case scenario the league could resume some time between May 9 and May 16 but even then it would be particularly difficult for the season to be completed by June 30 like European football’s governing body want. The season may have to spill over into July in order to be completed.

The report goes on to state that the worst case scenario is that the season does not start up again, the possibility of which is growing increasingly likely. Should this happen, the current standings will be final and there will be no relegation from the league although the top two from Serie B would come up meaning a 22 team league next season.
