As the coronavirus pandemic in Italy continues to ease, it’s reported Juventus President Andrea Agnelli proposed partial reopening of Serie A stadiums.
The Coppa Italia is due to return around June 13 with Serie A fixtures from June 20, but behind closed doors.
At the same time, theatres, cinemas and open-air concerts are going to begin slowly coming back to the Peninsula, which leads some to ask why football stadiums should be treated differently.
According to multiple sources, Juventus President Agnelli proposed a plan to the other 19 Serie A club owners to partially reopen the stands in mid-July.
The idea would be to allow in only 10 per cent of the capacity, building up to 25 per cent, to ensure social distancing can still be maintained.
It’s not entirely outlandish, as Poland, Russia and Serbia are already planning to let some fans in from June, while Spain, Bulgaria and Portugal are working on similar proposals.
