2020-21 Serie A start scheduled for Sept. 19

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. 

Zac Wassink is a football and futbol aficionado who is a PFWA member and is probably yelling about Tottenham Hotspur at the moment. Erik Lamela and Eli Manning apologist. Chanted for Matt Harvey to start the ninth inning of Game 5 of the 2015 World Series at Citi Field. Whoops. You can find him on Twitter at @ZacWassink
