The Italian Serie A will begin the 2020-21 campaign on Sept. 19, one week later that originally scheduled and a week after the English Premier League intends to start its season.
Per Reuters (h/t ESPN), the Italian top-flight announced the news via an official statement on Monday. The league also says it has shortened the annual Christmas break and scheduled fixtures for Jan. 3 and Jan. 6.
Juventus won a ninth straight Serie A title, as the country's giants of club football finished on 83 points and one point ahead of Inter Milan. Atalanta ended the season ahead of Roma via goal difference.
Like the majority of worldwide sports, Italian football halted the 2019-20 season in March due to the coronavirus pandemic. It's unknown when supporters will be permitted to attend Serie A matches.
