The league fixture between Ascoli and Cremonese was called off on Saturday one hour before the scheduled kickoff, because of fears over the coronavirus.

ANSA reports that the Italian Serie B was postponed, because the visiting side are from the Lombardy region in Northern Italy, where 30 cases have been reported so far.

Lega Serie B later confirmed the decision in a statement, saying: “Following an insurgence of coronavirus in the north of Italy, it has made the suspension of the match, projected for this afternoon, inevitable due to public health reasons.”

Both teams were already at the stadium, when they were informed of the development.

A Serie C match between Piacenza and Sambenedettese was also called off.
