Warning over Serie A armbands

The Lega Serie A has announced that any player wearing unofficial captain’s armbands will face punishment, starting from Week 4.

A new ruling for this season requires club captain’s to wear a white armband with the Serie A logo and ‘Capitano’ in large letters.

Players including Daniele De Rossi and Papu Gomez have ignored the ruling without punishment so far, but there will now be a crackdown.

Today the Lega Serie A has announced that “any violation of the above prescriptions will be taken into account by the above body, starting from the next round of the Serie A Tim Championship”.
