Napoli fans organise bizarre 'funeral' in preparation of winning Serie A title

Napoli fans organise bizarre 'funeral' in preparation of winning Serie A title

Napoli fans have created a cemetery for the other Serie A clubs in anticipation of the club winning their first league title in 33 years.

Napoli supporters have arranged rather unorthodox preparations for the Serie A side's first title win in 33 years with a 'funeral' for the other 19 top-flight Italian teams set to take place.

The Nepalese side look set to clinch the club's third ever Scudetto and first in over three decades on Sunday afternoon as they host Salernitana. A victory alongside Lazio dropping points to Inter will confirm their success.

In anticipation of the celebrations, the club's supporters have already taken to the streets, with some creating a mock cemetery as part of a 'funeral' for their Serie A rivals.

Videos have emerged online of the said cemetery in the Case Nuove neighbourhood of Naples, with a banner behind reading: ’For the whole of Italy an atrocious pain. After so many years we put you on the cross.'

With a coffin covered with the scarves and posts with the badges of their Serie A rivals, the cemetery is certainly a unique way in which to celebrate a league title, with it being the first Scudetto success in the lifetimes of generations of Napoli supporters.

Luciano Spalletti's side have seven more league matches remaining and boast a 17-point lead over Lazio at the summit of the table.

However, Napoli did suffer elimination from the Champions League last week after losing 2-1 on aggregate to fellow Italian outfit and reigning champions AC Milan at the quarter-final stage.

Fans are clearly not too aggrieved though given the extent to which some have gone in anticipation of clinching the league title with colossal celebrations expected on the south-western coast of Italy this weekend.
