To start afresh, but how? The cost of the protocols for some of the clubs are unsustainable. We urgently need a solution

The big question for football in these past weeks is whether the league will resume and, in the case in which way and when. Although all words may say that serves to act system in the reality of things, we see different ideas from category to category with the Series who wants to start again at any cost and as early as possible, B-Series, uncertain and divided between those who want to continue and those who, instead, freeze the season and finish in the fall by shifting the next vintage to 2021 (an idea that also likes to Adriano Galliani who has offered to play up to the 2022 championships in a calendar year – on the model of the american south – and then maybe return to the present system), the C-Series that has – almost – decided to take a leap forward and will propose to cancel the season and see you next year hoping that the economic damage (which there will be inevitable) are not too many or too large, maybe coming to that semiprofessionismo so much desired for over a year. And the women’s football?

The intention is to continue, not to scatter the long wave of the World and impair the growth of the last two years of the movement. But health protocols (collection, sanitization of the facilities, serological tests, etc.) may have a prohibitive cost (with a minimum of 120-180 thousand euro) for many companies and widen the gap that already exists between the companies related to the reality of the male and the other independent. The latter also are already suffering from the crisis due to the retreat of many sponsors, who at this time must take care to contain costs, not to jump in the air and can’t even afford the minimum support of a certain club, all the more so with the championship still. An alarm sounded both by the president of the Pink Bari Alessandra Noble is vice-president of the Essex Domenico Bonanni , who considers it impossible for his club to support certain costs. A situation that could be exacerbated even more if the FIGC decides not to play in the North of Italy, but only from Emilia Romagna down.

The disparity between the company’s A-Series and B-Series the situation is even more problematic) may complicate the desire of the division of women’s football to move forward unless you decide for some corrective measures to meet the companies that are suffering more heavy the crisis due to the emergency Coronavirus and allow it – in a situation of absolute uniqueness – to support costs that otherwise would cut out of the game, compromising the continuous around the league going to penalize the progress made so far. The alternative could be to close the season, missing just 6 days in September by delaying a few months the next. It would, however, the problem of contracts (in many cases the company do subscribe yearly to their athletes) and qualified for the Champions League that will start, subject to surprises, at the beginning of September.
