September 20, 2020

The Italian government will allow the football stadiums to reopen to the public with sanitary measures despite the coronavirus epidemic. Emilia Romaña and Veneto had already approved limited reopenings for the day this weekend.

Spectators have to register via the Internet, keep their distance, wear a mask at the entrance and exit and remain seated without flags or banners during the game.

Radio 1 reported late Saturday that there could be up to 1,000 viewers per game until October 7th, in response to an urgent request from Serie A and despite protests from Serie B that they consider “incomprehensible”. that they don’t get the same approval.
