Torino plan Superga trip

Torino have organised a private plane to ensure their players can attend a special service for the Superga tragedy.

There is a ceremony at the Superga Basilica in the hills around Turin every May 4, marking the anniversary of the plane crash in 1949 that killed the Grande Torino team.

The club had asked the Lega Serie A to move their game with Chievo in Verona, as it clashes with the ceremony, but the request was rejected.

However, Torino President Urbano Cairo appears to have found a way round the situation.

It was announced today that he has organised a private plane to fly the players and staff to Superga in time for the ceremony at 20.00 local time.

The game with Chievo kicks off at the Stadio Bentegodi at 15.00 local time on Sunday May 4.
