Serie A Covid ruling sets up legal clash

Updated: Jan 8

Italian football league administrators are insisting matches go ahead, despite some clubs being ordered to quarantine by local health authorities




Serie A officials have laid the ground for a potential legal battle by refusing to postpone matches involving teams that have been ordered to quarantine.


The Serie A governors are adhering to the league’s protocol by insisting that matches should go ahead provided there are at least 13 players available including one goalkeeper.


However, a legal clash is looming because Bologna, Salernitana, Torino and Udinese have been ordered into quarantine by their respective local health authorities.


It is anticipated that the clubs will appeal against the ruling of the Serie A administrators.
