Serie A has been suspended for over two weeks, and looks set to be suspended indefinitely due to the COVID-19 pandemic which has taken the lives of over 6,000 Italian citizens.

Calciomercato.com report that this afternoon the league held an assembly meeting in order to discuss various issues, the main one being what assistance the Italian government will give to help clubs due to lost revenue from the suspension of football.

The Lega has now drafted up a document, which will be sent to FIGC President Gabriele Gravina, who in turn is expected to discuss the matter with CONI and the Minister of Sport Vincenzo Spadafora.

The Lega estimates that should the season not resume, all 20 clubs could stand to lose an estimated €720m through TV rights, match day revenue and merchandising.

To combat these losses, the Lega have outlined requests to aid the clubs during the on-going pandemic.

Several of the reforms include allowing clubs to once again allow betting firms to sponsor their shirts, which was banned last year, easing the infamous Italian bureaucracy on building or renovating stadiums, and organising a different method to selling TV rights of Serie A.
