Benevento reschedule Cagliari fixture due to visit from Pope

Pope Francis greets the audience during the Weekly General Audience in Paul VI Hall.
A  visit from Pope Francis has forced a Serie A fixture to be moved.

Benevento's Serie A fixture with Cagliari has been put back 24 hours because the Pope is due to visit the Campania city when the game was originally scheduled to be played.

The Serie A strugglers had been due to meet their relegation rivals at 6 p.m. on March 17, but with the head of the Roman Catholic Church in town, it was feared security forces would be hard pressed to cover both events.

As a result, the Serie A fixture will now take place on Sunday, March 18 at 3 p.m. Udinese's match with Sassuolo, which was originally allocated to that kickoff time, has been brought forward to Saturday evening.

"Considering a request from the national observatory of sports events to postpone the game between Benevento and Cagliari, scheduled for Saturday, March 17 at 6 p.m., in order to favour adequate public order measures for the concomitant religious event which will draw a large crowd from the Province of Benevento, the commissioner Giovanni Malago has ordered the variation of fixtures in the tenth round of fixtures of the second half of the Serie A season," a Lega Serie A statement confirmed.

Benevento are propping up Serie A with just 10 points from 26 games, leaving them currently 11 points adrift of safety. Cagliari have 25 points and are just five above the drop zone.

Chris covers the funny side of the game for ESPN FC in the Toe Poke blog.
