Serie A studies the options for 2020-21

Serie A discuss a ‘collective bubble’, salary cuts and potential play-offs as the FIGC chief Gabriele Gravina has the final say in case of a new emergency.

The Lega Serie A will do what they can to finish the campaign in time to allow all competitions to be concluded and help the European Championship take place next summer.

The relaunch decree has established important innovations, but there are many possibilities under evaluation.

To avoid failure, football must go on at any cost and La Repubblica claims Serie A evaluate a ‘collective bubble’, as seen in NBA.

The report reveals the 20 Serie A medics are worried the protocol in place means it will be very difficult to start again in case of another break and therefore have an idea of a mini lockdown for football.

All the teams could be closed in retreats, being subjected to tests every four days for a few weeks and only go out to play matches.

Il Corriere dello Sport adds the Lega Assembly will meet to discuss offers of investment funds tomorrow and could possibly approve a new collective salary cut in Serie A during the summit to help the clubs.

Meanwhile, Serie A waits for the sports judge to decide on Juventus-Napoli and if the 3-0 defeat by default is not given, the League fears other teams will ask for postponements and for this reason the play-off hypothesis becomes increasingly more concrete.

A play-off for the Scudetto and the European positions in Serie A has been promoted by FIGC President Gravina in the past and the relaunch decree give him full power to make a decision in the event of a new emergency.
