Spadafora: 'Reopening stadiums not a priority'

Minister of Sport Vincenzo Spadafora has confirmed that the government doesn’t prioritise to reopen stadiums in Italy.

Spadafora was ‘confident’ that Italian dance centres, swimming pools and gyms will be able to reopen in January but pointed out that the government won’t prioritise bringing fans back to the stadiums.

“Everyone hopes to be able to resume,” Spadafora told Agorà. “But the government has a scale of priorities.

“The problem of having so many people going in the same direction, at the same time and on the same day, means having to do a series of checks and start a machine that doesn’t have priorities over others, such as schools.”
