Leagues across Europe wish to complete their domestic campaigns to avoid a ginormous financial collapse according to a report in today’s print edition of Corriere dello Sport.
Due to the ongoing global Coronavirus pandemic, leagues across the continent are on hold for the foreseeable future with it remaining a complete mystery as to whether the leagues will even resume at all.
According to this report, leagues want to finish though as failing to do so would lead to huge financial losses. When it comes to Serie A, it has been estimated that there will be a total loss of between €700-800 million spread across the clubs if the season does not conclude.
European football’s governing body UEFA initially wanted the seasons concluded by June 30 at the latest but given the situation they have understood that this may not be possible and exceptions may need to be made for some leagues in order for them to finish.
