The upcoming Italian football championship may start later than planned. The reason is the anomalously high temperature currently observed in Europe.
Lorenzo Casini, the president of Serie A, warned about this.
"It will be difficult to start the season on August 13. The first problem is related to the climate, because if the current temperatures continue, it will be very difficult to start the season on the stated date. The second point is that this season will be unusual in itself due to the hiatus due to the World Cup in Qatar", - he said.
It should be noted that at the end of the last season, the winner of the A series was "Milan". In the championship, "Inter" took the second place, "Napoli" took the third place, and "Juventus" took the fourth place.
It should be noted that the local media reports that the temperature in some regions of Italy exceeds 40°C.
