A decree from the government of Italy has directed all sporting events to be conducted behind closed doors for a month. The policy is a blanket ban covering all sports across all regions of Italy until the 3rd of April. The coronavirus has escalated dramatically in the country jumping to over 3,000 cases and over 100 deaths.

The government has also given clubs the responsibility of checking the health of their athletes and staff over the coming weeks. As a result Serie A games this weekend are scheduled to go ahead but behind closed doors.
