      Juventus Football Club’s statement on the decision to close the South Stand for this Saturday’s match between Juventus and Chievo

      Juventus Football Club is greatly perplexed by the decision reached today by the Italian National Olympic Committee to close the South Stand for this Saturday’s match between Juventus and Chievo.

      This decision impacts on Juventus and a section of its season ticket holders despite the fact that the perpetrator

      - is not a Juventus season ticket holder

      - was not in possession of a ticket for the Turin derby at the Stadio Olimpico

      Juventus emphasises the urgent need to ensure that all stadia in Serie A meet common security and technological requirements so that deplorable incidents, such as the one which occurred in Turin’s Stadio Olimpico, can be quickly stamped out of the game. Nothing has happened so far since that day in April.

      The club has therefore decided against reprising ‘Gioca con Me – Tifa con me’ (‘Play with Me – Cheer with Me’), an initiative that in previous years has brought thousands of children to the stadium, notwithstanding the similar circumstances.
