Soccer: Cagliari to host Juventus in Parma

Cagliari, December 19 - Cagliari will host Serie A leaders Juventus in Parma on Friday because of problems with their home ground, the League said on Wednesday. The move was made necessary because the club has so far not managed to get an extension of temporary permission to use the Is Arenas ground. Cagliari played a number of games in Trieste at the end of last season because of problems with their long-standing home, the Stadio Sant'Elia. The team moved to the Is Arenas Stadium in the outskirts of the Sardinian city this term but the ground has not been given definitive approval to be used. Renovation work on the stadium has slowed because of a criminal probe that led to the arrest of two council officials and the CEO of the company that was doing the work. Many Cagliari fans are furious as they had already bought tickets for the match, which was on course to be a sell-out at the Is Arenas.
