In view of the pandemic wave, Serie A is urgently asking for financial support from the Italian government.
League boss Paolo Dal Pino put the corona-related losses in a letter to Secretary of State for Sport Valentina Vezzali at more than one billion euros. The government had imposed strict viewer restrictions.
The next two football match days in Italy are to be played without an audience, which will further aggravate the situation for the clubs. Dal Pino also complains about the high costs of complying with the anti-corona measures and demands from Prime Minister Mario Draghi that the taxes and ancillary wage costs for the players can be paid in installments.
