The government of Italy is considering removing the 50% caps on football stadiums in the country. The Undersecretary for Sport, Valentina Vezzali in an interview with Gazzetta dello Sport via has said:

“100%? It’s an objective that must be reached as soon as possible. The government will speak by the end of September, we still have some time to assess the progress of the epidemiological situation. I am optimistic: the capacity of 35% indoors and 50% outdoors is only a starting point.”

AC Milan’s President Paolo Scaroni discussed the same at a launch via Pianeta Milan to say:

“With the Green Pass it is possible, desirable – it is necessary to return to 100%. In Liverpool it was full. Everywhere it is like this. I hope the government will listen to us. At least 75%. Having the stadium half full is bad. There is a lot of desire for the stadium [to be full]. We sell with great ease and we could fill more after two years of abstinence.”
