Italy uses Amex Stadium as role model

Italy’s deputy prime minister Angelino Alfano has cited English Championship football club Brighton and Hove Albion as a role model for Italian clubs in a campaign to improve ageing football stadia.

Alfano, who is also Italy’s interior minister, said according to the Gazzetta dello Sport: “We will work alongside the clubs on new stadia, using Brighton as a model. It’s time to launch phase two – clubs and state together. The stadia need to be modernised, using private funding. We and [Serie A] are going to form a task force to resolve the problems. With the stadia open seven days a week, they will be monitored by the clubs, who will be their owners. We’ve made a revolutionary and ultra-modern decision and we’re going to facilitate the reduction in bureaucracy.”
