Juventus President Andrea Agnelli Banned For A Year Over Sales Of Tickets Illegally


president has been banned for a year for his role in the sale of tickets to fan groups, the Italian Football Federation said Monday.

The court also fined 300,000 euros ($350,000).

 The federation’s prosecutor had requested a 2 1/2-year suspension, a fine and an order to force to play two home matches behind closed doors.

Agnelli allegedly authorized the sale of season passes and other tickets. He has acknowledged meeting with Rocco Dominello, an “ultra” fan linked to the Calabrian ‘ndrangheta crime mob who has since been sentenced to nearly eight years in prison for scalping.
