UDINE. Lega Serie A has decided to reduce the capacity of the stadiums to 5000 spectators on the days of 16 and 23 February. The concern of having to give up stadium takings for 2-3 weeks (with the prospect in the case of contagions on the rise of seeing the closed door period extended by two to three months) is growing: there would be 3-4 clubs at risk of bankruptcy .
But faced with the hypothesis that the Government would stop the championship, a good number of clubs including Milan, Inter and Juventus came to the meeting with a collaborative spirit: we provide a signal of openness to the Government and before it is the policy to prohibit access to the public in the facilities we reduce until January 23 the quota to 5000 spectators. Then from 6 February, when the championship resumes, it will be evaluated based on the trend of the curve.
The decision of the Tar
The TAR of Friuli Venezia Giulia accepted the appeal presented by the Lega Calcio against the provision of the Friulian health authority which prohibited the dispute of the Juventus team’s matches against Fiorentina (last Thursday) and the upcoming one against Atalanta (Sunday 9 January ), following the infection from Covid which involved 12 players and three staff members.
The decision of the Tar Fvg therefore authorizes that the match against the Bergamo players scheduled at the Friuli stadium in Udine will be regularly played.
The same decision also came from the regional courts of Campania and Piedmont in relation to the cases of Salernitana and Turin while Bologna remains in quarantine. In fact, now, the negative players of the two teams in question are no longer in isolation: Udinese-Atalanta and Verona-Salernitana could therefore play, but there is still uncertainty about the dates and times of some matches.
