“We are heading toward that decision,” Spadafora told reporters when asked if the government was thinking of blocking fans from attending games, Reuters reported.
The government last month banned sporting events in the country’s most affected northern regions and so far 10 Serie A matches have been postponed. However, the contagion has spread and ministers are considering new measures to tackle it.
Coppa called off
Thursday's Coppa Italia match between Napoli and Inter Milan became the latest Italian fixture to be called off, when it was postponed indefinitely on Wednesday.
The Serie A League, which organizes the competition, said in a statement that the semifinal, second leg match at the San Paolo stadium had been called off on the orders of the Naples city government. It is the 12th game to be postponed since the crisis began and the third involving Inter Milan.
Italy has been the worst affected country in Europe by the outbreak, with 79 deaths and more than 2,500 cases.
