Italy lifts suspension on night-time matches

ROME, Feb 15 (Reuters) - Italy has lifted a ban on staging soccer matches after dark, one of several measures to clamp down on hooliganism after a policeman died during riots at a night game two weeks ago.

Evening matches deemed to pose no threat to public safety can resume from Saturday Feb. 24, the Interior Ministry said in a statement on Thursday.

Italy briefly suspended all matches and introduced drastic anti-hooligan measures after policeman Filippo Raciti died earlier this month when fans at a Serie A derby went on the rampage, hurling firecrackers and chasing police vans.

Many stadiums across the country are rushing to meet tougher safety guidelines so they can reopen to fans.
