As Sky Sport Italia states, through, the meeting of Italian football unions today decided that there will still be relegations and promotions with 20 teams in Series A if the season ends early.
There was a videoconference between various organizations, including the Players’ Association, Coaches’ Association, Referees’ Association and FIGC today.
The result was Plan B, according to Sky Sport Italia, meaning that even if the season terminated early, there will be promotions and relegations this summer. This assumes the Serie A season will have 20 clubs next year.
There was another option- not to elevate anyone and promote two from Serie B, establishing a 22-side structure.
An upshot would be that if UEFA changes its August 2 deadline to finish domestic tournaments, then they’ll be able to start the 2019-20 season well into August and even September.
As of May 4, the COVID-19 pandemic moves into Phase Two with deaths, intensive care admissions and positive cases all falling rapidly.
Nevertheless, Sport Minister Vincenzo Spadafora has warned Serie A will not be permitted to resume until the medical procedure is fully decided.
