MUNICH (GERMANY) – How to end the championship at the time of the coronavirus? Christian Seifert, boss of the Bundesliga, would have found a solution after several meetings via Skype with the presidents of all German clubs.
The idea would be to play the missing matches in North Rhine-Westphalia, the area with the least infected with coronavirus. All games would be played behind closed doors.
Serie A could copy the Bundesliga to complete the championship but it is not as easy as it seems …
In that German area there are avant-garde stadiums such as those of the stadiums of Borussia Dortmund, Schalke, Bayer Leverkusen, Cologne, Borussia Moenchengladbach and Dusseldorf and many sports centers available to clubs.
If instead we go to see which are the Italian regions least affected by the coronavirus, we do not find a number of plants and sports centers of this level, but we also try to consider this possibility.
The Italian regions least affected by the coronavirus are Molise and Basilicata but they cannot be taken into consideration because they do not have football facilities used to hosting the top flight.
We can say the same for Valle d'Aosta. Then there is Calabria, a region that recently hosted Serie A between Crotone and Reggina and which has an excellent tradition between Serie B and Serie C.
To assign the scudetto in Calabria? Why not… we find four stadiums that would be suitable for hosting top football matches.
The Oreste Granillo in Reggio Calabria, with a capacity of 28,000 spectators, the Marulla stadium in Cosenza, with almost 25,000 spectators, the Ezio Scida stadium in Crotone, with almost 17,000 spectators, and the Nicola Ceravolo stadium in Catanzaro, which touches fifteen thousand spectators .
All the matches would be held behind closed doors with the Serie A clubs who could spend the race weeks in perfect isolation in the hotels and sports centers used by the clubs in Calabria.
