They were found guilty of altering their annual balance to have a surplus in the last three seasons.

With the penalty, Chievo now have negative two points in the table after three matches played in Serie A.

In addition, club president Luca Campedelli has been banned for three months, with four advisors also suspended for six weeks.

Through a statement, the club defended its position and announced that it will appeal the decision of the sports court.

“We are surprised and disappointed by today’s ruling,” said club lawyer Marco De Luca.

“We are firmly convinced that the club have always operated with fairness and correctness, and that the prosecutors’ investigation was not carried out adequately.”

Chievo‘s next match will be on Sunday against Roma at the Stadio Olimpico.
