AC Milan and the rest of the Serie A are set to lose big money due to the coronavirus outbreak across Italy that has seen many games being postponed and played behind closed doors. The government has enforced a ban of audiences for sporting events until the 3rd of April in the meantime as we reported here. Calcio e Finanza are reporting that Serie A clubs could lose about 28.6 million euros from match day revenues over the month.
