Modena declared bankrupt

Former Serie A club Modena have been declared bankrupt, ending 105 years of their history.

It’s a sad end for the Canarini, who were locked out of the Stadio Braglia for non-payment of bills, and have not attended the last three Serie C games.

Today is set to be the fourth, so failing to turn up for the Santarcangelo fixture will see the club thrown out of the division.

The last attempts to sell Modena faltered over the last couple of days and the players refused to take to the field, knowing they had not been paid in months and had no sign of more money coming from former President Antonio Caliendo.

Modena FC was founded in 1912 and had 13 Serie A campaigns, the most recent in 2003-04.
