Serie A starts on June 20th. The Football Federation does not rule out manipulations. So, in case of violation of the rules, the club can be cut off.
The Italian Football Federation (FIGC) has imposed severe penalties on clubs that violate anti-corona rules. If the clubs do not pass the tests on Covid-19, miss any of the employees, hide the results, or manipulate them, along with the huge financial penalties, they will also be in danger of being cut off from the championship. The FIGC released information about it today.
It seems that Italian football chefs have the expectation that they may hide the infection of any athlete or employee in some clubs. So, the federation has named a team of 31 doctors to oversee all the clubs.
The Italian championship was suspended on March 9 due to a pandemic. There are 12 rounds left until the end of the season. Restart is scheduled for June 20. Before that, the remaining matches of the Italian Cup must be held. The first return match of the semifinals will be held on Friday: Juventus will host Milan. Saturday is the second semifinal between Napoli and Inter. The Italian Cup final is scheduled for June 17.
The summer transfer window in Italy has officially changed
The Italian Football Federation (FIGC) has confirmed on its official website that the summer transfer window has been changed.
Because of the changed season due to the Coronavirus pandemic, the summer transfer window in Italy will open on September 1, 2020 and close on October 5. Most likely, this decision will be reflected in the summer transfer window.
