CAGLIARI, Sardinia (AP) -Cagliari's home match against Roma on Sunday has been postponed after the Sardinian club defied orders to play the Serie A fixture behind closed doors.
Cagliari's new Is Arenas has yet to pass security tests and local authorities ruled this week that the match would take place without supporters present.
However, club president Massimo Cellino urged fans to ignore the authorities, posting a statement on the club website calling for fans to attend peacefully, regardless of the ruling.
His actions led to the Cagliari municipal government ordering the game to be postponed on Sunday, following a late-night meeting.
Roma says it will lodge a complaint with the relevant sporting authorities.
