Serie A to host Champions League clash

A Champions League game between Italy and France is set to take place at the San Siro on March 14, with the Italian Premier League set to be joined by the English Premier League and the Spanish Liga de Futbol de Barcelona on the same date.

The Champions League matches will be played at the same venue as their domestic games and will be broadcast live by the Italian Serie A club Juventus.

It is understood that the games will be held on a first-come, first-served basis and the games could potentially be broadcast by ESPN3, as it was previously done for matches between Italy’s La Liga and Spain’s La Segunda.

It was previously reported that the Serie A would be the first of the three leagues to be officially announced, with Italy having confirmed its plans for the 2020-21 season last month. 

The Premier League, which was set to begin play in 2018, will then be played in 2021-22.

The Bundesliga will also be played from 2019-20, while the Spanish league will play from 2021-23.

A date for the Champions League has yet to be confirmed, with Premier League chief executive Richard Scudamore previously stating that the game was “not in the cards”.
