CASMS Restricts Juventus, Napoli & Roma Fans From Travelling To Away Matches – Report

Posted on 16/02/2010


The Committee for Security at Sports Events has banned Bianconeri, Azzurri and Giallorossi supporters from following their teams…

The Italian Committee for Security at Sporting Events (CASMS) has declared that Juventus, Napoli and Roma fans will not be allowed to attend the away matches of their respective sides.

The Commitee believes that the matches scheduled for this weekend and next weekend are “high-risk”, and will enforce the rule that stadia will have to close the away section at the respective grounds.

The matches affected are Bologna-Juventus and Siena-Napoli on February 21 and Roma-Napoli on february 28.

CASMS, though, has allowed the selling of individual tickets to Genoa-Udinese this weekend, Genoa-Bologna and Juventus-Palermo on February 28.

Authorities are confident that scaling-back the presence of away tifosi will suppress the chances of violence in and around the ground.
