“If the delegation law on sport reform falls, the consequences with the IOC in terms of sanctions will be safe and immediate. We would not be the first and not the last: for many countries that have not applied the Olympic card you know how it went. It would be an absolute defeat for the country and a sensational loss of credibility after having trusted the organization of the Milan-Cortina 2026 Olympics. We are not bluffing, we are literally joking with fire. And we have arrived. ” This was stated by the President of the Coni Giovanni Malagò, in a press conference that followed today’s Council.
“Since the end of 2018, we have been waiting for the decrees of what was not a reform but something that fell that did not have the practical aspects. A year and eight months have passed, it is incredible that we are still in this situation. We are going or maybe we have gone already offside. That is, out of time “. This was stated by CONI President Giovanni Malagò, on the sidelines of today’s National Council, referring to the stall on the draft of the Sports Reform Consolidation Act. “The government already in 2019 had promised that soon the current events would be resolved – added Malagò – this government has also officially committed itself with the guarantee that maximum by August would have resolved a situation that is absolutely no longer sustainable. It is not a pressure from Coni but a precise disposition of the IOC “.
