In the council room of the “Francesco Morlicchio” library the municipal council was held yesterday evening, where the management of Scafati (Sa) was supposed to approve the financial budget for 2022/2024, an initial step to purchase the renovation works of PalaMangano and the municipal stadium, necessary to make both structures coherent for the tournaments that The city’s basketball and football clubs participate in it.

Well, last night’s session, the budget was not approved, so the restyling of the PalaMangano will not start soon, which is necessary to smooth the chassis for the first series championship. Therefore, despite the sports miracle that occurred last June, as a result of the work, planning and large investments of Skafate entrepreneurs, and despite the absurd assurances of the Mayor of Scafati and the entire administration that PalaMangano will be adapted in time to start from the championship, at the moment, after exactly three months From the victory achieved in the final, the yellow and blue club find themselves obliged to seek hospitality elsewhere, in order to participate in the Serie A championship, which should be a resource instead. Of the pride and the pride of the whole city.

Bitter and disappointed, patron in the Lombards He wanted to say: “We Entrepreneurs, Managers, Title Sponsor Jevova, all sponsors and many Gyalubli fans mocked and deceived the unfulfilled promises of local politicians and politicians. We have always made them share in our initiatives and victories, but now more than ever they have left us to our sad fate. In fact, we are forced to migrate to another place to be able to participate in the first division that we have wanted, sought and yearned for for so many years. We never expected to find ourselves at this point in the season without making it to PalaMangano, a wood flooring imparted with the warmth, passion and affection typical of our supporters, must conquer hits and hits to keep us close to the top of the ride.

Instead, we have to go away from Scafati, forcing our fans to go to Napoli to watch our matches at home. We were denied our right to play on the field and in front of our fans. The city, the province of Salerno and the Vesuvian hinterland were deprived of the right and privilege to attend the best national basketball show on their territory, and the possibility of seeing the yellow and blue team face such noble companies as Olympia Milan, Virtus Bologna and many other participants in the Serie A championship and to attend the derby against Napoli. From the development of facts I can only conclude that the real desire to hand the PalaMangano to us to start the competitive season did not exist in reality.

From many quarters, including technicians and experts in administrative procedures, we were told that approving the budget was not the only way to reform both the PalaMangano Stadium and the Municipal Stadium, thus bringing them into line with the respective leagues. Michele Giordano Scavacese Calcio participates. Instead, we wanted to take the longest and most complicated path, one that punishes and insults the club and the fans. I am disappointed and bitter: the politics of the city of Scafati is not worth any Siri team and it is not worth a sport made up of projects, investments and sacrifices. Instead, I ask our supporters, now more than ever, to stay close to us and follow us to PalaBarbuto, aware that distances are bridged in less than half an hour’s drive, giving a moral slap to the politicians and politicians who in just three months have told fairy tales. We are instead a solid reality. The one thing we have in common in sports is intellectual honesty and loyalty in everything. Come on Scafati, always and anyway: we don’t give up! ».
