The Italian Cup final between Juventus
and Napoli on May 20 still has no venue after a row between the
Italian Olympic Committee (CONI) and Serie A over the use of
Rome's Stadio Olimpico.
Serie A rubber-stamped a decision on Monday to host the
final as usual in Rome but Gianni Petrucci, head of CONI which
owns the Olimpico, was annoyed that the league had not
officially asked him so he has blocked its use.
"For us the matter is closed, they'll have to think of
another stadium," Petrucci told ANSA on Tuesday.
Juventus reacted with anger, saying such a big match
deserved to be played at the famous arena in the capital while
Napoli fans do not want to travel all the way to Milan's San
Siro for the game.
