Attending fans is already allowed to attend Serie A matches. In the first stage, a maximum of 1000 people will be allowed on the stands.

The Italian government has agreed to allow Serie A matches to be watched from the stands. However, the number will be limited. A maximum of one thousand people will be able to enter the stadium – Football Italia reports.

Individual decisions by the governments of the Emilia-Romagna, Veneto, and Lombardy regions, which allowed fans to attend the stands, forced the Italian government and Sports Minister Vincenzo Spadafora to make concessions and allow fans to enter the stadium throughout the region.

It should be noted that in Italy, under the COVID-19 isolation rules, events such as concerts and theatrical performances were allowed to be attended by a maximum of 1,000 people in the open air. So, of course, football was no exception.

Thus, the rule adopted will only apply to Serie A matches. Fans entering the stadium area will be required to measure the temperature, wear a mask. They should also follow a social distance of at least one meter.

The decision of the Italian government will be in force until October 7 this year. After that it will be reconsidered due to the coronavirus and may increase the number of people present in the stands.

Recall that the Serie A 2020/21 season kicked off yesterday, September 19th. In the first match, Fiorentina won at home against Torino (1: 0). On the other hand, the meeting between Verona and Roma ended without goals.
