Italian top-flight Serie A is working on a strategy to let clubs grant access of up to 25% of their stadium’s capacity to fans.

With top-flight football back in action, the attention now turns to how can fans get back into the stadiums.

The German domestic season is over and it was completed behind closed doors.

The Premier League is underway, but with COVID-19 still out of control in England, there appears to be little chance of fans getting back in the stadiums any time soon.

La Liga is also progressing well behind closed doors, while their authorities have remained tight-lipped on any progress with fans attending the games.

In Italy, though the authorities are eager to get the fans back in the stadiums and are looking to do so before the Serie A season is over.

Today according to an interview reported by Goal, the Italian Football Federation President Gabriele Gravina insists he is working hard to make ti happen.

He said:

 “We’re working so that fans can go back to experiencing football up close again.”

“We’re working on percentages. As of today, we’re thinking of 25 percent. The problem lies in managing flows.”

“We’ll be ready to govern this process once the CTS gives us the opportunity to let fans back into stadiums.”
