Kick-off time of Coppa Italia final decided

Rome, April 30 (IANS) The Coppa Italia final between Roma and Lazio will be kicked off at 18.00 hours local time May 26, it was announced Tuesday.

This represented a compromise reached between the clubs, the Lega Serie A, the Italian Olympic Committee, TV companies, police and the local prefecture after prolonged talks, Xinhua reports.

The tie had originally been scheduled to start at 21.00 hours, but the local authorities opposed such a late start after trouble erupted outside the Stadio Olimpico before the recent League derby.

The issue was also complicated by local elections being held in Rome on the same day.
