The first round of matches in August were postponed after players chose to strike due to the failure to agree a new collective contract with the Football League.

Now those fixtures have been rearranged for Wednesday December 21, just after the last round of weekend fixtures ahead of the Serie A winter break.

Serie A would have shut down for three weeks but now there will only be a two and a half week break.
