BECAUSE OF CORONAVIRUS OUTBREAK: ITALY CLOSES SPORTS EVENTS TO FANS – INCLUDING SIX NATIONS MATCH WITH ENGLAND

Date:

Italy has ordered all sporting events to take place without fans until 3 April, including their upcoming Six Nations match against England, due to the coronavirus outbreak.

It is the second match of Italy’s Six Nations campaign to have been affected by the spread of COVID-19, as their upcoming clash with Ireland in Dublin this weekend has already been called off.

It has not been decided if the England v Italy match will go ahead without fans or be postponed in the hope that supporters could be allowed to attend at a later date.

Another rugby tournament impacted by the decision is Pro 14, which will see two matches forced to be played behind closed doors, and dozens of football ties will also be hit.

Thirty-two Serie A fixtures will have to be played in empty stadiums, as will the Coppa Italia semi-finals that need to be rearranged after being postponed earlier this week.

Football authorities in Italy have been left with a large pile-up of delayed fixtures to squeeze in in before the domestic season comes to an end in May, just a month before the European Championships are due to begin.
