There is a scandal brewing after two Castel di Sangro players confessed their 3-1 defeat to Bari in June 1997 was fixed “by the club.”
The story of their surprise ascent into Serie B became the subject of a book, The Miracle of Castel di Sangro by American author Joe McGinniss, which had also hinted at shady goings-on in the team.
Now La7 television programme Non e l’Arena has published two interviews which confirm the 3-1 defeat to Bari on June 15, 1997 was fixed.
