Following the one match closure of the "Curva Sud" at the J Stadium for racist chanting aimed at Napoli's Senegalese player Kalidou Koulibaly, Juventus have decided that the area in question of their stadium will be occupied by 9,000 school children for Saturday's home game against Genoa.

Tickets will be offered to all children born between 2004 and 2011 from local Piedmont and Valle d'Aosta football clubs with each club being allowed to bring twenty children with four guardians to oversee the welfare of the young spectators.

The initiative from the "Old Lady" has been called “Gioca con me… tifa con me (Play with me, support me) and forms part of the club's programme against racism as the Serie A side aims to "create a sporting spirit that is also used as an example for future generations".
