Calciopoli decision delayed

A decision over Juventus’ appeal for Calciopoli damages will not arrive for at least 45 days.

The 2006 scandal saw the Bianconeri stripped of two Scudetti and demoted to Serie B, with the latter title awarded to Inter.

However, a judge later ruled that Nerazzurri director Giacinto Facchetti had also been in regular contact with referee designators.

As a result, the Turin club are pursuing a civil trial for €443m in damages from the FIGC, which will be adjudicated by the tribunale amministrativo regionale [TAR] in the Lazio region.

ANSA reports that the application was discussed today, and a decision has been held over for a period of at least 45 days.

FIGC President Carlo Tavecchio has warned a decision in favour of Juve would see the Federation “go bankrupt”, but hinted that if the suit is dropped there could be a compromise over the Scudetti.
