Soft Quarantine Officer, Championship May End – Sports


Serie A savor the eve of the return to the field, and collect the government’s definitive ok to the new soft quarantine which makes it more likely to complete the championship. The loosening of the rule on isolation, without which even a single case of positivity would have complicated the plan to close on August 2, with an administrative rule had been anticipated yesterday at ANSA by the Minister of Sport, Vincenzo Spadafora. In the evening, the circular of the Ministry of Health arrived: “Another step forward; I thank Minister Speranza, now we will need responsibility, also from the fans, so as not to frustrate the efforts”, the comment of Federal President Gravina, with thought of the controversy over the celebrations of Naples. The soft quarantine provides, in case of a positive, the isolation also of the close contacts with continuity of training and a rapid test (with response within 4 hours) to the whole team on the day of the game, to allow the negatives to go down in field. The costs are borne by the clubs, once the race is over again to train in isolation. On the other hand, the agreement to transmit a few games in the clear is still complex, as requested by the Minister of Sport, Vincenzo Spadafora. In this case, the situation is decidedly more uncertain.

The minister had promised an “excellent deal” nearby, speaking before the Italian cup final, celebrated in the streets of Naples with gatherings far more risky than those one would like to avoid in bars by offering a few games even for non-subscribers to pay TV. At lunchtime today a quick meeting of the Lega Serie A assembly confirmed the clubs’ willingness to work, with the parties involved to get to clear two recoveries of the round with which the championship resumes, Saturday and Sunday, reducing the embargo of non-licensed TV channels (Rai and Mediaset in the first place) to re-propose the salient actions. Some problems, however, seem to have complicated the negotiation, and it is not said that an agreement will arrive within 24 hours. If instead an agreement is found, Dazn will broadcast Hellas Verona-Cagliari on Saturday at 9:45 pm also on its YouTube channel, and Sky would broadcast Atalanta-Sassuolo on Sunday at 7:30 pm also on its own free-to-air channel Tv8, in both cases without advertising. In any case, there is no mention of free to air for the other 12 days to be recovered. Waiting for the championship, the prologue of the Italian cup has satisfied the Serie A League. “The data on the ratings recorded last night on Rai 1 confirms the goodness of the choice to return to play and the Italians’ great desire for football”, he noted, the n.1 Paolo Dal Pino who, at the opening of the assembly, congratulated the president of Napoli, Aurelio De Laurentiis, for the victory in the final, and that of Juventus, Andrea Agnelli, for the fair play shown by participating in the award ceremony of opponents.
