Soccer: Serie A requests change to 'regional racism' rule
Milan face stadium ban after fans abused Neapolitans09 October, 14:54
Milan had a section of their home ground closed for a recent game after their fans taunted Napoli supporters for their southern Italian origins in a defeat at the San Siro stadium last month.
The insults were repeated by Milan fans at last weekend's 3-2 defeat to Juventus, prompting Serie A's sporting judge to order the team's next home game, against Udinese on October 19, to be played behind closed doors.
Milan risk being docked three points in Serie A if their fans re-offend. Club executives have said the punishments mean teams can be held hostage by small groups of fans.
Inter Milan fans, meanwhile, showed solidarity with Milan Tuesday by calling on supporters across the country to sing "discriminatory chants" during the next set of Serie A fixtures to see if the authorities take action against everyone.
