Football Notes: Juventus Stadium Will Be Closed For Next Two Serie A Games
Parts of the Juventus Stadium "will be closed for the club’s next two league games after the Bianconeri were punished for territorial discrimination." The two sections of the ground "have been found guilty of being responsible for derogatory chants aimed at the city and people of Naples" (FOOTBALL ITALIA, 11/11). ... The Guangzhou Super Football Club, a non-profit organization consisting of retired football players, coaches and referees, "was launched on Nov 11 at the landmark Yuexiushan Stadium." The club, based in the capital city of Guangdong province, "will launch a series of charity activities" to promote football culture in schools and residential communities, according to Peng Weiguo, a club member and retired Chinese national team player (CHINA DAILY, 11/12).
