The return of football fans to stadiums amid the coronavirus outbreak is currently not considered an option for the Italian government.

“In the stadium it is like at a demonstration where people gathering is unavoidable as in the stand when people have to go in and out,” Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte said at a podium discussion in Rome.

“I think opening (stadiums) would currently be absolutely inappropriate.”

The Serie A season begins on the weekend of September 19. All matches are presently intended to be played without fans despite the desire of clubs to welcome spectators back into stadiums.

A range of coronavirus restrictions in Italy will soon expire although the health ministry intends to renew them.
