Frosinone appeal CONI ruling

Frosinone announce they will take legal action, after CONI ordered the FIGC to punish them more severely for the controversial play-off against Palermo.

The Canarini were ordered to play two matches behind closed doors after numerous incidents in the Serie B play-off final, including balls being thrown onto the pitch to disrupt Palermo attacks.

The Sicilian side appealed to have the match replayed or awarded to them, and owner Maurizio Zamparini is still demanding admittance to Serie A.

While the Olympic committee rejected that appeal, they returned the case to the FIGC and ordered them to impose a more stringent punishment.

“Frosinone Calcio announces the lodging of an appeal before the TAR in Lazio to obtain a cancellation of this ruling, with a simultaneous request for compensation for damages relating to the decision published by CONI’s Collegio di Garanzia dello Sport on August 10, and the motivations published on September 10,” a statement on the club’s website begins.

“The Club disputes every passage, every argument, every conclusion of said sentence, deeming it wrong in law and illogical in fact.”

Frosinone then declare that “a judge unrelated to the sports world may be more objective and serene” and note they “already paid a very high price in disciplinary terms, having been forced to play two official matches at a neutral venue and behind closed doors”.
