ROME – The coronavirus has also affected the Italian Serie A football championship. According to the government's decision, the next championship rounds will have to be played behind closed doors for safety reasons. In this way, neither fans who have previously purchased tickets nor subscribers will be able to go to the stadium.
Some companies provide a refund, see AC Milan, some do not, see Juventus. On this delicate subject, Carlo Rienzi, president of Codacons , made his pronouncement .
"It is clear that, in the event of limitations to the public for football matches, those who have tickets and season tickets in hand are entitled to a refund, as is the case for air tickets and holiday packages not used due to the coronavirus.
In particular, the companies will have to return the unused portion of the season ticket to the users, proportional to the number of matches played behind closed doors, and fully refund the individual tickets, considering that the payment will not be made in return for a payment by consumers Object of the contract.
If the football clubs refuse to order refunds in favor of the fans, a maxi-class action will be launched against them promoted by Codacons on behalf of thousands of users damaged in their fundamental rights ".
