However, just last week UEFA and the European leagues committed to completing the season before 30th June.

Completing the football season remains a priority for the Italian Football Federation (FIGC), according to its president, Gabriele Gravina, but doing so may see the Italians breaking a Europe-wide commitment made just last week. 

Football in Europe's top leagues is currently suspended due to the coronavirus pandemic, in some countries indefinitely, but UEFA and the European leagues have nonetheless committed to completing the season before 30th June. 

According to Gravina, completing the season is a priority for the FIGC, but not one to be pursued at any cost.
