Italian soccer’s top flight has been given the green light to resume on 20th June after three months without play due to the coronavirus pandemic, but games are initially set to be staged behind closed doors. “It's a wish, I sincerely hope so,” Gravina told Italian radio station Radio24 when asked about fans returning to stadiums. “It's hard to imagine that, with all the precautions that are being taken, you cannot have a certain percentage of people in a stadium with 60,000 or 80,000 seats. ”Serie A gets green light for 20th June restartGravina’s comments come amid reports that Juventus president Andrea Agnelli has put a plan to the other 19 Serie A club owners for stadiums to partially reopen in July.
