Serie A stadium capacities are set to be reduced to 50% again in an effort to curb the spread of the Omicron variant of COVID-19, according to a report in the Italian media.
As has been reported by La Gazzetta dello Sport today, the Italian authorities are being forced to take a step backwards by removing 50% of the available seats in every Serie A football ground.
The Omicron variant of COVID-19 has had a major effect across the world and many countries such as Germany and France have already been forced to take measures such as making all football behind closed doors or cancelling all large spectator events.
Italy now looks set to follow suit by reducing football stadium capacities. This is a major blow to the clubs who are still recovering from having played for so long with no fans inside the stadium at all when the pandemic first began.
There will also be an obligation for all players and staff tobe double vaccinated in order to continue taking part in sport.
