Serie A will be played with the public from May 1

The Italian government announced today that as of May 1, the presence of the public will be authorized in football stadiums located in the regions least affected by the Covid-19 pandemic.

In the absence of the agreement being officially adopted in the Council of Ministers next Thursday, the plan is designed so that a maximum of a thousand fans can access the stands but in all stadiums.

Everything will depend on the epidemiological situation in each region. If it is located in the so-called orange zone, as is the case in Lombardy, the San Siro in Milan will not be able to host Inter and Milan fans.

On the other hand, in the Lazio region, in the yellow zone, limited access for Lazio and Roma supporters will be allowed at the Olympic Stadium in Rome.

No audience since October

In any case, Serie A will be played with the public for the first time since October, when the access of fans was again prohibited after allowing entry in a number of thousand since September for just a few weeks.

The Italian government has already authorized this week for the Olympic in Rome to open the doors to 25 percent of its capacity (about 17,000 spectators) in four matches of the next final phase of the Eurocup, which will be played in twelve venues distributed in other so many countries between June 11 and July 11.
