Last season 2016-17, Italian Serie A started 1 week before the usual end of August date due to Euro 2016 taking place this summer and Italia FA decided to end the season earlier to make sure Italian national team get enough time to prepare for the big event. This season however since there are no international events in 2017, Serie A season will start on its usual dates of last weekend in August 2016 and will be finishing on Sunday, 21 May 2017.
