After the Federal Council meeting – that was held on August 31, 2020, in Rome – the official start and end dates have been confirmed for the 2020/21 Serie A season. The Italian football championship will start on the weekend of September 19-20 and end on May 23; the schedule will be drawn up on September 2, 2020, at 12:00pm.
In addition, an important decision has been taken with regard to the refereeing world. The Federal Council has approved the reunification of the Serie A and Serie B refereeing commissions. Thanks to this revolution, the referees will be able to be designated indiscriminately for Serie A and Serie B matches.
