Italy’s FIGC hand Juventus a 15-point penalty!

The Federal Court of Appeals, presided over by Mario Luigi Torsello, has partially accepted the appeal brought by the Federal Prosecutor’s Office for the partial revocation of the decision of the Federal Court of Appeals, United Sections No. 89 of 27 May 2022, thus sanctioning Juventus with a 15-point penalty to be served during the current Serie A season and with a series of inhibitions for eleven executives (30 months for Paratici; 24 months for Agnelli and Arrivabene; 16 months for Cherubini; eight months for Nedved, Garimberti, Vellano, Venier, Hughes, Marilungo and Roncaglio).

The Court upheld the acquittal for the other eight clubs involved (Sampdoria, Pro Vercelli, Genoa, Parma, Pisa, Empoli, Novara and Pescara) and their respective directors and executives.

Juventus official reaction statement

Juventus Football Club S.p.A. (“Juventus” or the “Company”) informs that the Federal Court of Appeal, Unified Sections, having regard to the appeal for revocation pursuant to Article 63 of the Sport Justice Code brought by the Federal Prosecutor’s Office, declared the appeal for revocation admissible and thus revoked the decision of the Federal Court of Appeals, Unified Sections, No. 0089/CFA2021-2022 of 27 May 2022 and, as a result, ordered the penalty of 15 points in the standing for Juventus to be deducted in the current Sport Season and the temporary inhibition for the Sporting Director, Federico Cherubini, from carrying out activities in the FIGC context for 16 months, with a request for extension in the UEFA and FIFA contexts.

Pursuant to the revoked decision, the Federal Court of Appeals had rejected the appeal (“reclamo”) brought by the Federal Prosecutor’s Office against the decision of the National Federal Court, which, in turn, had acquitted Juventus and the other parties charged for because of the lack of any disciplinary offence with regard to the evaluation of the effects of certain transfers of players’ rights on financial statements and the accounting of capital gains.

The Company awaits the publication of the reasons of the decision and announces as of now the bringing of an appeal to the Sport Guarantee Board (Collegio di Garanzia dello Sport) in accordance with the terms of the Sport Justice Code.
