Match officials must compensate image damage, says audit court

Soccer: Calciopoli refs ordered to pay four million euros

(ANSA) - Rome, October 17 - Italy's Audit Court has ruled that the referees convicted for offences related to the 2006 Calciopoli match-fixing scandal must pay a total of four million euros in damages to the Italian Soccer Federation (FIGC), judicial sources said Wednesday. The compensation is for the "damage to the image" to the FIGC and the sport. The match officials involved have the right to appeal against the ruling. The Calciopoli scandal, which revolved around schemes to have compliant referees officiate some teams' matches, led to Turin giants Juventus being stripped of two Serie A titles and having to spend a season in the second tier. Four other Serie A clubs, AC Milan, Lazio, Fiorentina and Reggina (who are now in the second tier) were handed points deductions. photo: Massimo De Santis, one of the former referees involved in the Calciopoli scandal
