Italian Football : Cancelled


The Italian Football Federation has cancelled every Italian football match indefinetly. All League matches. All amateur matches. All International matches.

The latest move comes after a policeman died at a match in Sicily this evening and another has been critically injured. This follows some of the worst violence in football that occured across a load of matches in Italy last weekend from amateur level all the way up to Serie A matches. This violence also resulted in the death of a club official who was punched during violence between players and fans at amateur side Sammartinese.
