The all-clear is expected over the next few days for Italian stadiums to open up to 75 per cent capacity, with a plan to reach 100 per cent by the end of October.
According to the latest reports, a proposal to the CTS (Technical Scientific Committee) working with the Government was accepted.
That means within days the new decree will be confirmed, allowing open-air stadiums to be at 75 per cent capacity.
Current COVID restrictions limit the arenas to 50 per cent capacity, which has irritated both clubs and supporters.
Only those who have a Green Pass – with proof of vaccination, of recent recovery from COVID-19 or of a negative test posted within 48 hours of the event – can enter a stadium, and they have to wear masks as well as practice social distancing.
The COVID figures in Italy are now sufficiently low that the Government is ready to allow 75 per cent capacity in stadiums.
It is expected to give Italian fans extra tickets for the upcoming Nations League matches in Milan and Turin, against Sampdoria and either Belgium or France, in October.
