Italian League Suspended Till April Over Coronavirus Fears.

Italy’s prime minister Giuseppe Conte has announced that All sports in Italy has been suspended until at least 3 April because of coronavirus,
This includes Serie A but not Italian clubs or national teams participating in international competitions.

Serie A – Italy’s top flight – had already said all games would be played behind closed doors until 3 April.

Conte extended a series of strict quarantine measures, including a ban on public gatherings, to all of Italy.

Earlier, Italy’s Olympic committee (CONI) recommended the move to suspend all sport at all levels after hosting a special meeting of sporting federations on Monday.

Italy has been the European country worst hit by coronavirus so far, with over 9,000 confirmed cases and more than 450 deaths.

“This situation has no precedent in history,” a CONI statement said.

The announcement from CONI came just after Sassuolo v Brescia kicked off in Serie A. The game carried on and Sassuolo won 3-0.

It was also confirmed on Monday that Serie A side Roma’s Europa League tie at Sevilla on Thursday will be played behind closed doors.
