Roma’s appeal on Hellas Verona loss to be heard in two weeks


Roma will soon learn their fate regarding the one-point punishment they received earlier this season.

The Giallorossi were handed an automatic 3-0 defeat in their league match against Hellas Verona in mid-September. The reason? Lega Serie A’s sporting judge ruled that Paulo Fonseca’s side fielded an ineligible player.

Despite the match ended in a 0-0 draw, the Giallorossi were punished due to a clerical error after they added midfielder Amadou Diawara to the Under-23 portion of their official team sheet. 

Diawara, who was already 23 years-old at the time of the fixture, should have been included on the regular 25-man squad list. Roma argued that the error was made and good faith and did not give them a sporting advantage.

The club immediately appealed the ruling but the Italian FA (FIGC) refused to overturn it.

In response, the Giallorossi lodged another appeal — but this time with the Italian Olympic Committee (CONI).

Filippo Biafora of Il Tempo has reported that CONI’s “Collegio di Garanzia dello Sport” will discuss the case between Friday, 12 March and Wednesday, March 17.
