FIGC wants to proceed without spectators

The FIGC will ask the Italian government to allow them to play football matches behind closed doors until March 1, to not disturb the preparations for Euro 2020.

President Gabriele Gravina has reportedly decided to bring the “federal doctors and a representative of the ministry of health” together to conclude about the availability of the sports facilities after the coronavirus outbreak.

Not only Serie A will be affected by the virus, as Inter’s return leg against Ludogorets will most likely be played behind closed doors at the Giuseppe Meazza this Thursday.

Accordin to Sky TG24, the Federcalcio ask to be able to carry out the required fixtures in a “calendar already full of commitments” and because of the necessity of concluding “the campaign within May 24 given the start of the European Championship”.
