Italy: Cagliari’s stadium to be demolished? According to La Nuovo Sardegna, the Stadio Is Arenas could be torn down as it is an illegal structure that should not have been given planning permission given its close proximity to the Montelargius wetlands.


Massimo Cellino, the President of Cagliari, is being interrogated by the police in a prison cell. He was arrested along with the local Mayor on Friday morning in a raid in relation to fraud in the construction of the venue.

Despite knowing that the permits made provisions for a temporary structure, Cellino has been accused of erecting a permanent one. In addition, it is claimed that the Isolani President piled pressure on to the council to re-route funds from a different project towards the construction of the stadium.

Interrogations are scheduled to begin today amidst rumors suggesting dramatic actions will be taken.
