Serie A matches postponed due to Coronavirus outbreak in Italy.
Three matches in the Serie A league scheduled to take place on Sunday have been postponed due to a coronavirus outbreak in Italy.
The news comes following an announcement on Saturday that 42 matches in the amateur and youth leagues had also been called off, along with the Serie B fixture between Ascoli and Cremonese.
The Prime Minister of Italy has announced that all sporting events in the Lombardy and Veneto region will be postponed due to an outbreak of the Coronavirus.
That means Sunday’s Serie A matches between Verona v Cagliari, Atalanta v Sassuolo and Inter v Sampdoria are not expected to go ahead.
Inter officially confirmed the postponement of their game via their official website in the early hours of Sunday, following an announcement from PM Giuseppe Conte late on Saturday confirming the situation.
“Minister of Sport Spadafora intends to suspend all sporting events planned for Sunday in the Veneto and Lombardy regions,” said Conte’s statement.
The Entire areas of Lombardy and Veneto are currently on lockdown due to the virus, which has so far caused two deaths in Italy.
