Security Alert: U.S. Consulate General Naples, Italy- April 27, 2023

Security Alert: S.S.C. Napoli’s Potential Victory (“Scudetto”)

Location:  Naples Citywide

Event:   Large celebrations city-wide are expected in late April-early May when the S.S.C. Naples soccer club mathematically clinches the Serie A championship. A second, formal celebration at the conclusion of the soccer season in early June is also expected.  Spontaneous celebrations could last multiple days and there will be a corresponding increase in large, public gatherings, heavy traffic or road closures, significant use fireworks, and alcohol consumption throughout the city.  The large public gatherings, heavy traffic, and likely road closures will cause significant delays commuting to and from work, schools, and airport and train stations.  Visitors/tourists to Naples and the surrounding area may find increased traffic and likely road closures cause significant delays moving to, from, and within the city.
