Chievo retains Serie A position amid transfer probe

Chievo Verona will retain its place in Serie A, the top division of Italian club football, after the Italian Football Federation (FIGC) opted not to proceed with a case concerning alleged financial irregularities.

FIGC prosecutors had requested that Chievo be docked 15 points for the 2017-18 season, which would have seen the Verona club relegated from Serie A. The case is connected to allegations that it deliberately inflated transfer fees in dealings with Serie B club Cesena, which had already been deducted 15 points for the forthcoming season but has now gone bankrupt.
