All 20 Serie A clubs have reached a decision to complete the rest of the 2019/20 fixtures, this despite Italy being the worse affected European nation by the coronavirus.

The other leagues across Europe have opted against completing their respective campaigns. Ligue 1 chose to cancel the remaining fixtures in their season and deem the current standing of the table as the final outcome – meaning Paris Saint-Germain were handed the league crown.

The meeting was held, and now all 20 clubs has agreed to the plans. The meeting wasn’t based around Serie A’s return, however, as the issues of TV rights were also discussed.

Legal action has been threatened by Serie A against Sky, Dazn and IMG, who regularly show top flight Italian football.

The idea of resuming the 2019/20 season will be abandoned by the government if they feel the FIGC do not find a suitable solution in its protocol that ensures the safety of staff, coaches and players is not at risk for the rest of the coronavirus outbreak.
