Juventus Claim 400 Million €

Italian giants Juventus have lodged a claim for more than 400-million euros with a local court against the Italian Football Federation (Figc) over the 2006 calciopoli scandal, Italian press reported Tuesday.

Juventus accuse Figc of unequal treatment and lack of action regarding the 2006 match-fixing scandal that saw the Old Lady of Turin stripped of two league titles and relegated to Serie B. AC Milan, Lazio, Fiorentina and Reggiana were also punished but Inter Milan escaped unscathed and were even awarded the 2006 scudetto crown. According to La Gazzetta dello Sport Juve are claiming 444-million euros with the court in Latium, in the central and western part of Italy.

Juve were stripped of their 2005 and 2006 league titles but have been exhausting every possible avenue to try to get that decision revoked, including taking a case to the Italian Court of Arbitration for Sport as well as European football governing body UEFA. This is the original link. As you may know, Universitatea Craiova was subject of an abuse made by Romanian Football Federation this summer. The court is still working at this case, but this could be a good precedent to follow.
