Fans could return for Milan derby on October 17, according to Italian undersecretary for health Zampa

Following the latest decree from the Italian government quelling any hopes of fans returning to stadiums before September 30, the undersecretary at the ministry of health Sandra Zampa has alluded to the possibility of grounds reopening in October.

Speaking to Radio Punto Nuovo – her words transcribed by ANSA – Zampa has claimed that supporters could be in the stands for the Milan derby on October 17, as long as the Covid-19 situation has not deteriorated in the country.

“If the [Covid-19] numbers are good, and if we’ve succesfully passed the reopening test [in other places], there could be a crowd at Inter-Milan on October 17 at the San Siro, if they behave well.”

“If we do well with [the reopening of] schools, we can then talk about the stadiums. October 4th will be a bit early, we’ll need 15 days to evaluate it.”
