Lega Serie A have drafted up a 36 page document which contains the guidelines that will have to be followed should the 2019/20 Serie A season resume according to a report in today’s print edition of Italian daily newspaper Corriere dello Sport.
The Rome based newspaper have summarised some of the most important guidelines that will have to be followed by players, staff and match officials.
There will be a maximum of 300 people permitted in any stadium all of whom will be equally distributed between three separate areas and everyone will have their temperature taken prior to entering.
Due to the fact the remainder of the season will be carried out during the sweltering summer heat, games will not kick off at the traditional time of 15:00 CET, when it will be too hot. Kick off times for matches will be 16:30, 18:45 and 21:00 instead.
Teams will have to enter stadiums in different ways to minimise contact and starters and substitutes will take turns to be in the dressing room to get ready. Moreover, only match officials will be allowed to go into the referee’s room.
Teams will not shake hands prior to the match and there will also be no mascots and their entrances and exits from the match will not happen simultaneously. The report goes on to add that pre and post-match interviews will be kept to a minimum
