The president of the Italian Football Federation (FIGC), Gabriel Gravina, says the season will end in the 2019-20 Serie A on the Corn virus epidemic.
Italy’s top aircraft were suspended indefinitely last month due to the spread of COVD-1, and the FIGC has already stated that the operation will not be launched until the health and safety of all concerned is guaranteed.
The Italian government has extended its current stricter sanctions on movement and outdoor activities to May 3, although reports released this week in the country suggest that some clubs are eager to return to training at that time, begin playing later this month and finish 2019-July 20.
Some teams are unwilling to resume the season – who made a point clear of Lazio through 2 games while defending defending champions Juventus – but Gravina hopes the promotion will resume as soon as possible.

Gravina Sky Calcio told the club, “I will repeat what I was saying: We will start all over again if everything is guaranteed for the health of the athletes and the people who work in the clubs.”
“We had a meeting on the 15th of this month between various technology and scientific organizations to discuss the next steps. We need to be on the same page.
“Hopefully we will start again as soon as possible but we must finish the season – if we can’t do it, it can have very negative impacts.”
Coronavirus has killed at least 114,170 people worldwide, with more than 1,851,400 confirmed cases.
Italy – which remains in lockdown – has killed more than 19,890 and recorded more than 156,360 cases.
