Bari expected to host Italy vs Malta

The European Qualifier between Italy vs Malta on Saturday October 14 is expected to be played at the Stadio San Nicola in Bari.

Although the FIGC is yet to confirm the venue, Bari mayor Antonio Decaro announced during a programme on television station TeleBari that delegates from the FIGC visited the stadium on Monday morning to inspect the facilities.

Decaro added that the FIGC should give their official reply shortly, followed by a final inspection by UEFA.

Italy hosted Malta at the Stadio Comunale in Bergamo in 1987, Stadio La Favorita in Palermo in 1993, Stadio Alberto Braglia in Modena in 2012 and the Stadio Artemio Artemio Franchi in 2014
