Roma were due to start training later this week, but those plans have been shelved amid doubts over when their season will begin.
Roma have cancelled their pre-season training camp in Pinzolo due to uncertainty over the date of their first competitive fixture of the 2019-2020 campaign.
The Giallorossi finished sixth in Serie A last season and were scheduled to participate in the Europa League second qualifying round at the end of July.
But amid suggestions that fifth-place finishers AC Milan are planning to withdraw from the competition because of financial issues, potentially giving Roma a bye to the group stage, Paulo Fonseca’s side have taken the decision to scrap their trip to the Italian Alps later this week.
“First and foremost, we want to sincerely apologise to those Roma fans who have already made plans to follow us throughout the training camp, and all the people of Pinzolo,” chief executive Guido Fienga said in a statement published on the club’s official website.

“We understand the inconvenience this will cause fans who had booked travel and accommodation in Pinzolo to attend the training camp and we are looking into what we can to do alleviate the disappointment this late cancellation has caused.”
Roma have been busy restructuring their coaching and backroom staff during the close-season, with a new head coach and sporting director appointed over the past fortnight.
