Italian prime minister Mario Draghi is to decide on whether or not fans will have to possess a ‘green pass’ in order to enter Serie A stadiums during season 2021/22.
The green pass is given to citizens who have received two shots of the anti-COVID vaccine and will allow entry to public places in the coming months, as well as opening up travel to those who are in possession of it.
Thursday is the decision day and all will be clear by the end of the day, with fans of Italian football waiting in anticipation, according to La Gazzetta dello Sport.
One of Draghi’s right-hand men, Andrea Costa – minister of health – claims that the pass being extended to football fans is the common sense approach.
“The green pass to enter stadiums?” he quizzed. “We’re talking about something that’s already used and will help us return to some sense of normality.
“Applying it to the stadium for the start of the season will allow us to get going with fans in presence.”
