The outbreak of coronavirus in Italy has sounded warning bells all across Europe over the last couple of months. Coronavirus in Italy has spread on a much larger scale over the last few weeks. There are more than 400+ deaths recorded on an average in Italy since the past couple of weeks. Following the unprecedented outbreak of coronavirus in Italy, Serie A was suspended on March 9, 2020, when the situation of coronavirus in Italy was deemed out of control. Damiano Tommasi, head of the Italian Players' Association, has given a hint that the Serie A season could stand cancelled amid the situation surrounding coronavirus in Italy.

Damiano Tommasi confirmed that there has been a video conference set between Italy's sporting leaders. It is a high possibility that the officials decide to shelve the current Serie A season, Tommasi said. Tommasi, while speaking with ANSA, stated, "There’s concern that the season will end here. It’s, therefore, necessary to tackle the problem of ending the season from a sporting point of view and a contractual one". However, there were reports suggesting that Serie A might consider ending the season by using different measures such as the playoff system.

However, it is still not decided whether Juventus will be declared as the winners of the Serie A 2019-20. Juventus are currently on the top of the Serie A 2019-20 points table. However, there is only a single-point difference between Juventus (63) and Lazio (62), and as there are about 13 games left in the Serie A season, fans have said that it will be unfair to name Juventus as the champions of Italy. The officials will have to come up with a precise way to decide the winners and the relegation of the current Serie A 2019-20 season as there is only a nine-point difference between the 17th and the 20th spot.
