Growth Decree, Marotta: An Own Goal for Italian Football

Marotta expressed his disappointment given the recent successes of Italian football on the continental stage. As he points out, “At a time when Italian football was making a comeback at the European and global level, with three teams that participated in the finals of the major continental competitions last season, the decision to abolish this tax relief represents an own goal for football and the nation’s economy.”
