The Federal Court have punished Lazio, president Claudio Lotito and two club doctors for violating the Covid-19 protocols set by the FIGC.

According to an official statement released by the Italian football federation earlier today, the Biancocelesti have received a €150,000 fine for violating the Covid-19 protocols, failing to communicate positive cases of Covid-19 to the Local Health Authority ahead of the games against Club Brugge, Zenit and Torino.

Lazio president Claudio Lotito was banned for seven months, with club doctors Ivo Pulcini and Fabio Rodia being given 12-month bans.

The punishment is less severe than the one requested by the FIGC Prosecutor’s Office, who asked for the club to be given a €200,000 fine, a 13 month and 10-day ban for Lotito and 16-month bans for the two doctors.

The accusations laid against Lazio relate to the period earlier in the season when Ciro Immobile, Thomas Strakosha and Lucas Leiva all tested positive for the virus in some tests, negative in others but were still involved in squad training and the match against Torino.
