Italy’s Minister of Sport Vincenzo Spadafora says Serie A will “go ahead” with games played behind closed doors following a meeting held in Rome.
Serie A has been thrown into chaos following a string of postponements due to the ever-growing spread of the Coronavirus in the country.
However only games in certain regions have been cancelled.
This has led to in fighting between many of the clubs, with some stating that either all games go ahead, behind closed doors, or they should all be postponed.
Today a meeting was held between the clubs and Italy’s Minister of Sport, Vincenzo Spadafora, in order to resolve the ever-growing crisis.
Upon the conclusion of the meeting, held at the CONI headquarters in Rome, Spadafora stated that the league will forge ahead with playing games behind closed doors.
“The championship goes ahead, but we are moving towards the idea of playing games behind closed doors,” Spadafora told reporters.
“We will try to continue holding sporting activities whilst protecting the health of the public.”
Spadafora’s comments come on the heels of Napoli and Inter’s Coppa Italia semi final second leg being postponed this morning.
