Serie A 2013-14 dates

The new Serie A season will start on August 24, 2013, and conclude on May 18, 2014, it has been confirmed.

The opening weekend will see two games played on the Saturday, with the other eight matches set for Sunday August 25.

There will be three midweek rounds, while the Christmas break will last for two weeks with the first games of 2014 set for January 5.

The Italian Super Cup will again be played in Beijing, China. That match between the Scudetto winners and Italian Cup holders will take place on August 10.

However, should one of the finalists have European preliminary tie commitments, then the Final will be switched back to Italy.

The Coppa Italia Final will be played earlier than usual – April 16 – given that the 2014 World Cup will be played at the end of next season.
