Italy’s female soccer players are against the possibility of a playoff format to finish their season.
A decision on whether and how the Serie A women’s league will resume is expected to be made during an Italian soccer federation meeting.
One of the proposals is to have playoffs. That would involve half of the 12 Serie A teams.
A statement by the Serie A women’s players says they are against it because “it doesn’t guarantee true fairness.”
They say “we all go out on the field or no one does.”
Juventus, AC Milan and Sassuolo are the only three clubs which have managed to resume training. Many of the clubs also have players who are still abroad.
