Serie B: Bari lose appeal

Bari saw their appeal against a two-point penalty rejected, which means Sunday’s Serie B promotion play-off will be hosted by Cittadella.

As the season came to an end, Bari were ahead of Cittadella in the table and therefore got the advantage of hosting the play-off preliminary game.

When Bari received a two-point penalty for financial irregularities, they dropped behind Cittadella and the venue was therefore switched from the Stadio San Nicola to the Stadio Tombolato.

Bari staged a last-gasp appeal, which forced the play-offs to be delayed, but today the Federal Court of Appeal rejected it.

The fixture is therefore set for the Tombolato, as Cittadella host Bari in the promotion play-offs.
