Serie A staggered kick-offs?

Serie A matches should hopefully resume by June 13 or 20, but it’s reported there will be three different kick-off times throughout the day, including three midweek rounds.

There are still 124 games to be played if the 2019-20 season is to reach its natural conclusion and the agreement of a medical protocol for group training was the most significant step forward.

A final decision will be made on May 28 as to if and when the Serie A fixtures start up again.

According to La Repubblica, there will be rounds played out in nine weekends and three midweek sets of games.

As the teams are playing at the height of summer, later kick-off times will be encouraged.

It’s reported they will be at 16.30 local time, 18.45 and 21.00.

Serie A in a usual weekend will have most of the matches kicking off at 14.00 local time.

There are also some at 12.30 on a Sunday, plus 18.00 and 20.45 on Saturday and Sunday.
