MILAN (Reuters) - Serie A has postponed to Oct. 13 a meeting to evaluate bids by private equity funds for a stake in its media business, Italy’s top flight soccer league said on Tuesday.

Serie A top representatives were due to meet on Oct. 9 to discuss offers by two private equity consortia led by CVC and Bain vying for a stake in a newly creating company managing the league’s broadcasting rights.

The meeting will be teleconferenced, the statement said, after Serie A President Paolo Dal Pino has tested positive for COVID-19
