Meanwhile, closed Curvas could be opened to children.
Italian Prime Minister Enrico Letta has promised that he will appeal to the country’s parliament next year to allow Italian football clubs to improve their stadiums.
In what has been a long-standing issue in Italy, the latest promise suggests that there will be genuine movement for clubs who have been restricted in their ability to build their own stadia.
While Juventus are currently the only club to privately own their own stadium, Udinese are set to follow suit by renovating the Stadio Friuli, while Lazio, Roma, AC Milan, Inter Milan and Napoli are just a handful of other clubs looking to do the same.
However, their efforts thus far have been in vain due to the stand-off with local councils who own the stadia, and while they have been more than happy to receive rent and other payments through use of the facilities, they have not been forthcoming in paying for improvements.
Nevertheless, Letta appears to have offered clubs some hope with his latest comments, with the process potentially set to be made easier in the New Year.
“I want to have the final word on a long-standing stadium problem,” Letta is quoted as saying by La Gazzetta dello Sport.
“There will be an amendment drawn up in the stability plan which will define this issue once and for all, and I will be inviting the parliament to approve it.
“This is the appeal I will be making to parliament: from Jan. 1, we need new laws for more modern stadia without any barriers.”
Club officials have long bemoaned the decrepit state of stadiums considering there has been few upgrades made since the country hosted Italia 90′.
They have identified that things must change in order to make facilities more appealing to families while also opening up new revenue which currently leaves them falling behind their European counterparts.
While the Bianconeri are expected to continue to benefit from the additional income which will allow them to further strengthen the playing squad and settle debts, their domestic rivals have been forced to instead search for commercial sources in order to compete.
It has been a sustainable model, but if they are to make progress a privately owned stadium is fundamental to growth both financially and in terms of growing into a modernised organisation.
Meanwhile, Italian National Olympic Committee president Giovanni Malago has called upon the Lega and clubs to introduce a new precedent by allowing children to enter stadiums when ‘ultras’ are banned from stadiums.
Malago is keen to see this happen at Juventus after their Curva ban was announced for the clash with Udinese on December 1, but it remains to be seen whether or not it is given the green light by all parties concerned.
However, perhaps the long-term vision of Letta is the most promising aspect of the statements made on Wednesday, but it is unclear as to whether it is merely yet another rallying cry or if action will finally be taken.
