Serie A reveal new season schedule


The Serie A have revealed the provisional dates for all remaining matchdays, with the competition ending on August 2.

Torino's meeting with Parma at the Stadio Olimpico on June 20 will be the first Serie A game since the league was suspended in March amid the coronavirus pandemic.

That will be the first of four outstanding games in hand to be played over that weekend, with the next round of fixtures starting on June 22.

All kick-off times for games up to and including matchday 35, which will take place from July 21-23, have been set, with weekend fixtures scheduled for 17:15, 19:30 and 21:45 local time to avoid the intense afternoon heat during the Italian summer.

There will be just six days between June 20 and July 23 without at least one Serie A fixture.

All games on the final day of the season are provisionally scheduled to kick-off at 21:45, though this could be split into different blocks depending on the situation in the table.

Defending champions Juventus sit one point clear of Lazio at the summit with 12 games remaining, and the pair will meet in a potentially pivotal match at the Allianz Stadium on July 20.

Italy's domestic season is expected to restart with the second legs of the Coppa Italia semi-finals on June 13, though only a June 17 date for the final has been officially confirmed.

It is expected that the UEFA Champions League and Europa League will resume in August.

Key confirmed upcoming Serie A fixtures:

June 28 – Milan v Roma
July 2 – Atalanta v Napoli
July 4 – Juventus v Torino
July 4 – Lazio v Milan
July 5 – Napoli v Roma
July 7 – Milan v Juventus
July 11 – Juventus v Atalanta
July 12 – Napoli v Milan
July 19 – Roma v Inter
July 20 – Juventus v Lazio
