Specifically the first 10 rows. Unofficial flyers handed out, signed by some head honcho of the ultras group though, stating women should not be in the first 10 rows and that it's a 'sacred place'.

Hardcore fans of Lazio football club in Italy have circulated a letter saying women should be banned from part of the Curva Nord of Rome's Olympic Stadium.

The Lazio ultras have gained a reputation for violence, racism and anti-Semitism.

Before the first game of the season, an unofficial flyer was handed round saying the stand was a "sacred place" where women were not allowed.

It said women should go to other parts of the stadium.

The pamphlet called for "women, wives and girlfriends" to not sit in the first 10 rows of the stand.

"Those who choose the stadium as an alternative to the carefree and romantic day at the Villa Borghese [a Roman historic house and park], should go to other parts," it read.

The flyer is signed "Direttivo Diabolik Pluto", who is one of the leaders of a group of Lazio ultras known as the Irreducibili.

Last season the club was fined after supporters displayed anti-Semitic stickers showing Holocaust victim Anne Frank in a Roma shirt.

People who bring Ipads to games should also be banned for life. 

I agree. Far too many fans these days are all too happy to whip their phones out and take a snapchat/instagram video for their desperate followers when a player celebrates in front of them. It's mildly acceptable if you're a kid. If you're an adult you should be escorted to the nearest exit, nearest cliff and pushed off it.

I think that in the sector where the Ultras, that is no place for a woman. They don't want them banned from the stadium, it is rather from the group core. Many ultras in Eastern Europe have similar politics but none of them are mainstream clubs so get little to no coverage.

Trust me... If my wife is anything to go by, Italian women are more dangerous than Italian men!  :shutup:
