Italy Deputy PM Angelino Alfano Announces 'Revolutionary' New Law To Transform Stadiums
Italy Deputy PM Angelino Alfano announced on Monday that a "revolutionary" new law is to be adopted to "transform stadiums," according to XINHUA. Clubs in Italian Serie A and B have "complained for many years they have to rent stadiums from the local council as the current laws make it very difficult for them to construct their own stadiums." Alfano revealed at a Serie A meeting that actions "will be taken to satisfy the clubs in this regard." Alfano: "It will be a revolutionary presentation with three main principles: the first is the possibility to build sporting venues even using private capital, the second regards a cut through the bureaucracy that slows down operations, while the third regards the possibility of opening new structures and commercial activities inside these venues" (XINHUA, 11/19).
