first_imgGabriele Gravina, president of the Italian Football Federation (FIGC), assured on Wednesday that she is studying various options to finish Series A, something she considers “absolute priority”, and that a “hypothesis” is to resume competition on May 20 or early June.Gravina recalled that at this time “nobody can make predictions” on how the coronavirus pandemic will evolve, but stressed that the FIGC has a duty to study the available options, in statements published by the Italian media. “Nobody today can make forecasts until we have this health emergency. It is a unique emergency, which affected all sectors. But as soon as it is overcome we must get ahead and football is thinking about how to resume competition. The absolute priority is to finish the championships “Gravina stated. “Until April 18 there should be total isolation. The hypothesis is to start on May 20 or, as a last option, in early June, to end in July”he continued. Series A has been suspended since March 9 due to the coronavirus pandemic, which caused more than 13,000 deaths and more than 110,000 infected in Italy.Gravina welcomed the decision by UEFA to grant the national leagues the June 1-9 period, previously devoted to the national teams, to facilitate the conclusion of the tournaments, if the health emergency permits.Yes, the FIGC president sees little feasibility to extend the competitions until August, because, he considered, it would jeopardize the development of the next season. “There is even talk of ending in August and September, but I have stressed that I don’t want to risk ruining another season to save this. Today nobody can make forecasts, but programming is a duty, “he said.He also excluded the possibility of handing this title over to Juventus, current leader of Serie A, if it is not possible to resume the competition.last_img read more
