This year, the season started very early and the reason has been clear for some time: the World Cup will be played in Qatar in November. For the first time in history, in fact, the championships will stop to play an international competition. The physical conditions of the players will certainly be assessed, also because, especially for those who reach the final, there will be many games to be played consecutively.
The news, however, comes from Lega Serie A. As told today by Radio Kiss Kiss, in fact, the highest Italian federation of our championship, would be thinking of a mini tournament to be held in the United States, during the stop of the championship. Already between 6 and 8 teams would have joined this mini tournament and would certainly be present among them the Napoli of Aurelio De Laurentiis.
Obviously, the players present will be those who will not go to the World Cup. Furthermore, the reason and purpose would be clear: try to sell better in the future in Serie A TV rights overseas.
