Lega Serie A chief Luigi De Siervo has pledged to “go and get racists one by one” with facial-recognition technology.
Serie A has been heavily criticised for not doing enough to tackle racism, when it has already helped catch people guilty of illegally streaming matches.
However, De Siervo assured at a summit in Capri: “We’re putting out not only a sporting event but also a set of values.
“There are racists in our stadiums and we, who have zero tolerance on this, will go and get them one by one.
“We’ll do it through technology. Thanks to facial recognition, we’ll catch the individuals responsible and we’ll ensure that they can no longer enter a stadium.”
