Serie A to return to being played behind closed doors after new governmental decree

John Solano

Italy Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte has signed a new decree that will force Serie A to return to being played behind closed doors.

Thus far this season, Italian clubs have been able to admit 1,000 spectators per home match — however, this will temporarily be suspended.

The measure is one of many being implemented in the new decree in an attempt to help curb the recent uptick in COVID-19 cases in Italy.

The decree will officially be in force starting tomorrow until the 24th of November. Some of the other measures adopted in the new decree includes the closure of bars and restaurants at 6PM, the suspension of all amateur sport leagues, and a ban on public swimming pools.

So Serie A will continue, but the stadiums will be closed.
