A new decree signed yesterday by Italian Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte has ordered that all professional football league matches be played behind closed doors at least until the 24th of November.
So far this season, all Serie A clubs have been able to allow up to 1,000 in the stands for each match, but this will end beginning on the next match day.
This evening, Italian Sports Minister Vincenzo Spadafora appeared on Rai 3 television program “Che Tempo Che Fa” and discussed the latest decree, which also effects restaurants, pools, and amateur sports.
“At this time, we haven’t considered suspending Serie A,” he revealed.
“However, Serie A itself implemented a protocol that wasn’t respected.”
“From an international level, the examples we’ve seen of actual and real bubble environments have worked well. Meanwhile, our bubbles have been applied with questionable methods.”
