Italy FA Chief Slams Lazio Fans Call To Ban Women As 'Bad Joke'

Italy's football federation chief on Monday slammed as a "bad joke" the call by die-hard Lazio ultra fans to ban women to the back rows of the Olympic Stadium in Rome.

A leaflet being attributed to Lazio ultras was circulated before the team's opening Serie A game -- a 2-1 loss to Napoli calling for women to be banned from the "sacred place" of the front rows in the Italian capital.

"It was the bad joke of the summer," FIGC commissioner Roberto Fabbricini told Radio Anch'io Sport on Monday.

"When we talk about a stadium that must go back to being a meeting point for families, ghettoising a group of people seems very stupid to me."

Italian media reported that those who distributed the leaflets had been identified by police using video footage who have passed their findings on to prosecutors. Gbam! No time!!
