Is Arenas finally open

The Is Arenas is finally open to fans for Sunday’s Cagliari-Pescara game, although only one section will be able to host supporters.

It was this afternoon confirmed that the new venue has passed security checks for the Distinti section of the stands, which can contain 5,000 people.

Only season ticket holders will be allowed in to watch the Serie A match.

The Is Arenas had twice failed security checks, meaning their home ties had to be played behind closed doors.

When President Massimo Cellino urged supporters to attend last Sunday’s game with Roma anyway, authorities called off the fixture amid fears over public safety.

Roma were awarded a 3-0 victory by the Disciplinary Commission.
