Soccer: 15,000 grounds risk closing over energy costs

FIGC President Gravina appeals to govt for help

(ANSA) - ROME, SEP 6 - Italian Soccer Federation (FIGC) President Gabriele Gravina said Tuesday that around 15,000 football grounds in Italy risk closure due to soaring energy prices.
    "The world of voluntary sports associations is in danger of stopping with these increases," Gravina told ANSA via telephone.
    "In my case, 15,000 soccer grounds risk shutting down.
    "I hope this alarm call is heard as soon as possible by the government.
    "If the situation is complicated for big clubs, it is getting unsustainable for the smaller ones that are struggling to keep the facilities open". (ANSA).
