The Cagliari confusion at the Is Arenas continues, as it has only been announced hours before the game with Catania that the main stand is closed.
The club had released a statement on Friday evening assuring the local Mayor had given the all-clear for every area of the stadium to be open to fans for the first time this season.
It was to open its doors fully for today’s 17.00 GMT kick-off against Catania.
However, on Saturday an emergency meeting of the local authorities ruled the main stand is still not safe for supporters and will be closed.
The Is Arenas has repeatedly failed security checks on the hastily arranged structure that was put up over the summer.
Today’s note just hours before the Serie A match urges all fans with tickets for the main stand to stay away, as they will not be allowed in.
Cagliari President Massimo Cellino had been so pleased with the ‘opening’ of the stadium that he pledged to play Ave Maria on the guitar with violin accompaniment on the pitch.
