With the Decree Law 105 of 23 July, which was published in the Official Gazette and has already entered into force, the Draghi government has given the technical indications – among the many included in the provision – for the presence of spectators in sporting events.
As for the public for sporting events, there are no surprises and the indications provided by Undersecretary Valentina Vezzali before her departure for Tokyo have come true: the lower percentage of the two hypothesized in the draft was chosen.
For indoor facilities, therefore, it will be possible to have a maximum of 25% in the white area and no more than 1000 spectators in the yellow area, obviously with Green Pass for all spectators and without the provision of possible regional exceptions. In the event that a region turns orange or red, the doors will be locked. Specifically, the text of the decree.
