San Siro to Operate at Half Capacity for Italian Super Cup Final

Inter’s Supercoppa Italiana final clash against Juventus on January 12, is expected to be graced by at least 38,000 spectators at the legendary Giuseppe Meazza “San Siro” Stadium. According to today’s print edition of La Gazzetta dello Sport, Wednesday’s clash will be played with a 50% capacity – as dictated by the new regulations.

Serie A’s new restrictions will allow only a reduced capacity of five thousand fans to attend league matches – that will apply to the next two rounds – amid a rising number of Covid cases across the country.

Several number of matches were canceled during the last few match weeks – from Bologna – Inter and Atalanta – Torino to Fiorentina – Udinese and Salernitana – Venezia. Napoli vs Juventus, was however, allowed to go ahead although there were a notable number of absentees for the match.

San Siro, being Italy’s largest stadium with a whopping seating capacity of around 80,000, will host the Final with half its capacity.

Only the Italian Super Cup will witness a match being played a high capacity, after which league matches in the peninsula will resume with the new temporary restrictions.

The Derby d’Italia Final will undoubtedly play an important role in how the respective seasons of Inter and Juventus progress.
