ASCOLI – The Coronavirus alarm has led to the postponement of the Ascoli-Cremonese football game which was scheduled for February 22 at 3pm at the Del Duca stadium in Ascoli Piceno and valid for the Serie B championship.
The decision of the Gos (Operational Safety Group) was communicated shortly before to the two teams that had already arrived at the Ascoli sports facility. In Cremona a positive case was reported, and in the Lombard city schools were closed and all cultural and sporting events canceled.
Ascoli-Cremonese postponed for Coronavirus, the protest of President Massimo Pulcinelli: "Now we close all public businesses for fear …".
The decision of the Gos sent the President of Ascoli Massimo Pulcinelli in a rage. The patron of the Marche club has expressed his anger through a story published on Instagram. We report it below:
“It's official postponed! Absurd country! Ridiculous! Run by irresponsible! Stadium?? The least dangerous place in the world! Now let's close all public businesses for fear! ".
Ascoli-Cremonese was only one of the many Saturday matches postponed in Italy. 88 games of the amateurs who should have been played in Lombardy were also postponed and the challenge of the Primavera football championship between the Cremonese and Brescia was postponed.
The only one who protested was Ascoli's number one. The other companies have accepted the postponement of the matches without batting an eyelid (source Ansa).
