MOST COMMENTED

An Italian court has ordered the referees involved in the game-fixing scandal that marred the 2005-2006 Serie A season—also known as “Calciopoli”—to pay $5.25 million in damages to the Italian Soccer Federation, the Associated Press reports.

Paolo Bergamo, who selected the officials for each match, received a $1.31 million fine, the heaviest individual fine, while colleague Pierluigi Pairetto was ordered to pay $1.05 million.

Innocenzo Mazzini, the former President of the Italian Soccer Federation, was fined $918,000, and former referees Massimo De Santis and Tullio Lanese were each fined $656,000. Another nine referees were fined smaller amounts. All can appeal.

The Calciopoli scandal saw Juventus stripped of its 2005 and 2006 scudetto titles and then relegated to Serie B by an Italian court. Other Serie A clubs received point penalties, while several club officials and referees received long bans.
