Napoli fans show how to fake ID
A website for a group of hardcore Napoli fans has published ways to fake a controversial fan's identity card aimed at tackling hooliganism.
The card is a programme introduced by the Ministry of the Interior across Italy to allow authorities to keep tabs on problematic fans and ultimately ban them from stadiums.
But on Tuesday Il Mattino newspaper published the instructions from the fan website, prompting the public prosecutor in Naples to open an investigation.
The card is deeply unpopular among many fans who describe it as an infringement of personal liberty.
All season-ticket holders and fans wishing to travel to away games are obliged to carry the card, which contains personal information about the fan.
Around 10,000 fans in Napoli have been issued with a card but hardcore supporters' groups have launched a campaign against the card saying: "no season ticket, no ID card".
