Cagliari forced to face Roma behind closed doors
The club had hoped to change the minds of the local authorities by highlighting the work done to the Is Arenas over the last two weeks.
"Cagliari Calcio, represented by President Massimo Cellino and everyone who works for the club, can no longer see a future due to the bureaucratic difficulties and the collective disinterest of the authorities," read a statement.
"Cagliari Calcio and its engineers consider the structure to be adequate and secure.
"This move is absolutely peaceful and was pushed by the pain and frustration of defending our right to exist."
