Serie A strike ends; season to start

AP

Rome — The Serie A strike ended Monday after the Italian players' association and league signed a temporary collective contract, clearing the way for the season to start this weekend.

The new contract expires in June, whereas usually the deals last three years.

The players' strike postponed the scheduled start of Serie A the weekend of Aug. 27-28, and both sides wanted to reach an agreement before the second round begins Friday with defending champion AC Milan facing Lazio at San Siro Stadium.
