Italian club Pescara Serie B was scheduled to play in the 28th round against Benevento wearing protective masks, but the referee did not allow them to do so. It is noted that the players wanted to protect themselves from coronavirus in such away.
The judge stated that such a measure was not provided for by regulations and asked the players to remove the masks.
