Official: Cagliari return to Sant'Elia

It is now official that Cagliari-Catania will be played at the Stadio Sant’Elia on Saturday afternoon.

The Sardinians finally got the all-clear for the return to their old stadium after over a year of problems, as the local council awarded a security certificate this evening.

There are still limits awaiting more building work, so only 4,798 people will be allowed in to the Curva Nord and Tribuna areas of the stadium.

The decision is cutting it fine, as the Serie A match with Catania will kick off at 17.00 UK time (16.00 GMT) on Saturday. Tickets will go on sale from tomorrow.

This will be Cagliari’s first game at the Sant’Elia since April 1 2012, as the team moved around to the now demolished Is Arenas, the Stadio Tardini in Parma and primarily the Stadio Nereo Rocco in Trieste.
