Stadium capacities in Italy could be increased to 80% by October, which could see an increase in the number of fans allowed into the San Siro.

This according to today’s print edition of Milan-based newspaper Corriere della Sera, who report that a decision will be made by the scientific committee for the Italian government as to whether to approve distancing measures by September 30.

Inter have welcomed the return of fans to stadiums this season, with increased revenues after having to play without fans for more than a full season as well as the emotional aspect of the players getting to experience support from live crowds.

However, so far football stadiums have only been opened to 50% capacity, which is far from optimal to the Nerazzurri and other football clubs especially from a financial perspective.

The social distancing regulations which have enforced this limit are being reviewed and the Italian government is hoping to be able to modify that policy to allow more spectators for cultural and sporting activities in stadiums, as well as cinemas and concert halls.
