Coppa Final decision made

It is now official – the Coppa Italia Final between Roma and Lazio will take place at 18.00 hours local time on Sunday May 26.

The tie was initially set to kick off at 21.00 hours, but the local authorities opposed such a late start after trouble erupted outside of the Stadio Olimpico before the recent League derby.

After talks between the clubs, the Lega Serie A, the Italian Olympic Committee, TV companies, police and the local prefecture, a compromise has been reached.

The issues were also complicated by local elections being held in Rome on the same day.
