Serie A clubs could lose 700m

Serie A clubs could lose up to €700m if the remainder of the season cannot be concluded, according to La Repubblica.

The league has been suspended in the midst of the Coronavirus with between 12 and 13 games remaining, depending on the team.

At present, the proposal is to restart the season on May 2, and conclude it on June 30.

However no decision can be made until UEFA hold their critical summit on Tuesday, which will decide the fate of Euro 2020 and how best to finish the Champions League and Europa League competitions.

La Repubblica reports that they estimate that between domestic and foreign TV rights for Serie A, in addition to the Coppa Italia, Italian clubs stand to lose out on close to €430m, should the season not be concluded.

Additionally, taking into account match day revenue and merchandising, the Rome daily suggests that the final figure could be around the €700m mark.

Should the season not be properly completed, it’s reported that the clubs would turn to the government and Minister of Sport Vincenzo Spadafora for assistance.
