The Reggio Emilia stadium area banned five hours before the start of the match, maxi deployment of the police to avoid clashes
Everything is ready in Reggio Emilia to host the safety playoff between Spezia and Verona. In addition to reducing the capacity of the Mapei Stadium and granting the two clubs 4,000 tickets for the curves, a special plan has been prepared to try to avoid incidents between two supporters considered “hot” and also historic rivals of the newly promoted Reggiana in Serie B The first strong measure was the early closing order of the adjacent shopping centre, which will lower the shutters already five hours before the start of the match set for 20.45. Traffic will be diverted and controlled by a reinforced number of law enforcement agencies and health centers.
Just the forces of order and the health personnel will be called to work overtime, given that in the neighboring Rcf Arena just yesterday and the day before yesterday the double concert by Zucchero “Sugar” Fornaciari was held, who returned to his Reggio Emilia after so many years of absence. Access to the stadium will then be limited to a maximum of 15,000 spectators. The number corresponds to 70% of the capacity of the Mapei Stadium, which was initially granted for a maximum of 8,000 seats. Tickets can only be purchased by holders of the fan card residing in Liguria or in the Veneto region. Tickets for the Curva Nord, Tribuna Est Laterale Nord sectors are reserved for supporters of La Spezia. Tickets for the Curva Sud, Tribuna Ovest, Laterale Sud sectors are reserved for Hellas Verona supporters. Hoping that everything goes smoothly even if the premises, including disagreements among fans, are not the best.
