The Italian Football Federation has set a deadline of August 20th to complete the current season for the country's top three tiers.
The FIGC's new deadline would see the current campaign completed on August 20th with the new season scheduled to begin on September 1st. The Italian leagues were halted in mid-March following the coronavirus pandemic but it was cleared to resume training by the Italian government this week. However, the matches are not expected to resume until the middle of the next month.
There will be a contingency play for the promotion and relegation play-offs and a co-efficient system should the season be curtailed and this will apply to Serie A, Serie B, and Serie C.
"The FIGC has expressed its willingness to restart and complete the national professional competition by setting the last closing date for Serie A, B, and C competitions to 20 August," a statement read.
"Prior to the re-start of the competitive activity, it will be the responsibility of the federal council to determine the criteria for defining competitions where, due to Covid-19, the season should be suspended again."
The Italian Federation will also allow for the Coppa Italia competition to be concluded by the end of August.
