Pro Piacenza squad on strike

Serie C side Pro Piacenza are on strike over unpaid wages, so Pro Vercelli turned up to find the stadium locked.

The game was meant to take place this weekend and Pro Vercelli sat outside in the team bus for 45 minutes before turning back.

Pro Piacenza players had said they were going on strike in protest at months of unpaid wages, while the local council locked the stadium doors due to arrears in the rent for the Stadio Garilli.

Pro Vercelli will now be given an automatic 3-0 victory, but the future of Pro Piacenza is up in the air.
