Coppa Italia fans 'sign of normality'

Lega Serie A President Paolo Dal Pino hopes 20 per cent capacity in the Coppa Italia Final can be ‘a sign of a return towards normality.’

The ruling was made by the Italian Government this afternoon following a request from the FIGC to open up to fans a little earlier than the June 1 deadline.

It means circa 4,700 supporters will be present at the Mapei Stadium in Reggio Emilia on May 19 when Atalanta and Juventus face off.

“We thank to Government for having accepted our request to bring fans back for the Coppa Italia Final,” Lega Serie A President Dal Pino told reporters.

“It is a sign of a return towards normality, which we all need. We’re confident that we can open up the stadiums for the final rounds of the Serie A season with 1,000 fans in safety.”
