Coppa Italia: Digital fans, self-service trophy to be on parade

A series of initiatives will help Juventus and Napoli stage the Coppa Italia Final in the COVID era, including lightshows in the stands and a self-service trophy ceremony.

It kicks off at the Stadio Olimpico in Rome on Wednesday at 20.00 UK time (19.00 GMT), behind closed doors.

In a press conference this evening, Lega Serie A President Paolo De Siervo outlined a few of the tweaks made to ensure the game can go ahead with social distancing.

Christian Vieri will run an Instagram Live stream before the game, during the interval and after the final whistle.

The empty stands of the Stadio Olimpico will be filled with a lightshow allowing for digital supporters and their fan choreography to still be present.

This is the first trophy to be assigned in world football since the lockdown, but there won’t be the usual ceremony to hand over medals and silverware.

Instead, they will be picked up by the players themselves, left on a table in the centre-circle.
