Several regional authorities such as Emilia-Romagna, Veneto and Lombardy had already passed individual rulings allowing fans into Serie A stadiums in their regions. “In order not to have disparity between the teams and as an experiment in view of further openings, I asked that this decision be extended to the whole of the national territory,” Vincenzo Spadafora, the sports minister, wrote in a post on his Facebook page.
The situation will be reviewed Oct. 7 based on the latest coronavirus data in Italy. The Italian health ministry reported another 1,638 new cases of coronavirus and 24 deaths on Saturday.
