Postponed Serie A Matches Scheduled For Next Week

After the tragic death of Piermario Morosini during Livorno's match against Pescara on Saturday, all matches in Italy last weekend were postponed. That meant that there were ten games to fit somewhere into an already busy schedule, so there was some question as to when they'd actually end up being played.

It turns out that the suspended matches will be played on April 24th and 25th, which are the Tuesday and Wednesday after this weekend's round of fixtures. The games to be made up include AC Milan hosting Genoa and Cesena vs. Juventus. The exact schedule is unconfirmed, but will probably be based around next weekend's fixtures, with the teams playing on Saturday or early on Sunday slotted in for Tuesday (the most obvious candidate being Udinese vs. Inter Milan) and the rest on Wednesday.

As of now, it's not clear when the Serie B matches will be replayed, but it's probably safe to assume a similar schedule, since they also have next midweek free.


Serie A 2012, Week 33: All Matches Postponed After Death Of Piermario Morosini

All Serie A matches in Round 33, and the remaining matches in Serie B, have been postponed due to the death of Piermario Morosini, who collapsed on Saturday during the match between Livorno and Pescara. In memory of Piermario, the FIGC has suspended all matches.

The midfielder, 25 years old, collapsed of an apparent heart attack 31 minutes into the match, and had died by the time the ambulance reached the hospital. Such a tragedy is not just a loss to his family and friends, to his teammates, or even to Livorno. The loss will be felt by the entire calcio community, from Entella Chiavari to AC Milan. Nothing could be more appropriate this weekend than setting aside team colors, calling off matches, and showing strength in unity in the face of the death of Morosini.

So use those hours you would be settling back and watching calcio to connect with a loved one. Please.
