ITALIAN ISSUES: REUTERS' Brian Homewood reported Serie A side AS Roma "will have to close an additional section of the Stadio Olimpico" for its next home game because of more anti-Naples chanting by its supporters. Roma was ordered to close both the Curva Sud and Curva Nord sections behind the goals for two home games because of anti-Naples chanting in a cup match against Napoli," a sanction which began at home to Sampdoria last Sunday." However, Italy's sporting tribunal said that fans in the so-called "Distinti Sud," a more expensive section of seating adjacent to the Curva Sud, themselves "took part in anti-Naples chanting during Sunday's game" (REUTERS, 2/18).
