Coronavirus could cost Serie A more than €700m – Italian Federation chief Gravina

The FIGC chief warned an economic crisis could irreparably damage Italy's passion for football
Serie A could lose over €700 million (£628m/$769m) in revenue if plans to restart the league do not come to fruition, according to Italian Football Federation [FIGC] president Gabriele Gravina.

The Italian top flight has been suspended since March due to the coronavirus pandemic, and Gravina said the division has already lost more than €500m (£449m/$550m).

As the FIGC prepared to meet with the country's minister for sport to discuss a plan to recommence matches from June 13, Gravina warned of the financial consequences of an extended suspension.
