Serie A Could Propose A Reduced Audience In The Stands

According to ‘La Gazzetta dello Sport’, the option of a partial reopening of the stadiums could be discussed at the next Federal Council meeting on June 8th.

The debate on reopening the stadiums is back, although this is only partial, something that will be discussed on 8 June at the Federal Council meeting for Serie A or at the league meeting, according to ‘La Gazzetta dello Sport’.

For now, the majority trend is for all matches to be played behind closed doors, as will be the case in the other leagues due to resume shortly.

The protocol established so far states that only professionals (referees, players, managers…) can access the stadiums, but the positive evolution of the pandemic could lead the Government to authorize the presence of certain public.

The measure would be carried out respecting the social distances, as it would happen in cinemas and theatres, so there would be much fewer fans than those allowed by the capacity.

Giovanni Carnevali, director-general of Sassuolo, supports this measure. “The fans are the most important part for a football club, we will play without regret, but at this moment we are obliged to do without them,” he told ‘Radio Rai’.

“However, I believe that this is a problem that we must address quickly, reasoning about a partial reopening of the stadiums while respecting the rules of distance. We have to think about it, we can’t always be late: we need programming, leadership and common sense, but not fear,” he explained.

Juventus are also in favour of starting to open the grounds in Italy. According to ‘La Stampa’, Andre Agnelli raised the possibility of setting up a space for the fans to go and cheer, occupying between 10 and 25% of the stadium’s capacity.

According to the ‘Mirror’, the English Federation will study if the final of the FA Cup can be played with 20,000 people at Wembley, which has a capacity for 90,000.
