Fiorentina fans have been banned from travelling to this weekend's away game at Napoli, according to Italy's committee for the analysis of security at sporting events (Casms) on Tuesday.

The move was first drawn up last week, but the disciplinary body has only now rubber-stamped the plans.

Casms also imposed restrictions on the sale of tickets to Bologna fans for their trip to Fiorentina on September 21 to one per person, with buyers needing to show a form of identity.

Several lower league matches have also been subject to restrictions.

The move comes just a day after Napoli were fined 10,000 euros (14,200 dollars) and ordered to close two parts of their stands for four league games after violent scenes during a match against AS Roma last month.

Italy's interior ministry had also already banned Napoli fans from travelling to away matches all season.

Casms are also looking at the possibility of taking added security measures for Italy's World Cup qualifier against Georgia on Wednesday.
