Chievo have been deducted three Serie A points and fined €200,000 after being found guilty of false accounting.
The Flying Donkeys had been accused of trading players with Cesena to create around €25m of false profit, allowing them to register for Serie A when they’d otherwise have been ineligible.
After an initial botched trial a new case was brought, and yesterday prosecutors asked for a 15 point deduction.
While the FIGC has found the club guilty, a much lighter sentence has been imposed.
“The Tribunale Federale Nazionale - disciplinary section - chaired by Cesare Mastrocola has accepted the referral of the prosecutor, sanctioning Chievo Verona with a three point deduction in the table, to be taken in the current season, and a fine of €200,000,” the statement reads.
“The TFN has also sanctioned the President of the club, Luca Campedelli, with a three month ban, as well as a one month and 15 days ban for the advisors Piero Campedelli, Giuseppe Campedelli, Michele Cordioli and Antonio Cordioli.
“The Tribunale decided that it should not proceed with the case against Cesena due to the revocation of their affiliation, sanctioning Guido Aldini and Samuele Mariotti to one month and 15 days.”
