Trial Date for Lazio’s Inconsistent Covid-19 Test Results Appeal Set for 7 September

Lazio president Claudio Lotito will be back in court next month, discussing the inconsistent Covid-19 test results.

As reported by Italian newspaper Il Messaggero (via LazioNews24) earlier today, Biancocelesti president Lotito, doctors Ivo Pulcini and Fabio Rodia will be at a hearing at CONI’s Collegio di Garanzia on 7th September next month, appealing against the sanctions levied against them earlier this year.

The Lazio trio have submitted appeals to the Collegio di Garanzia and this is the highest level of sporting justice in Italy, meaning it is their last chance to avoid the sanctions laid upon them by the Federal Court of Appeal.

Lotito, Pulcini and Rodia all received a 12-month ban but now have the opportunity to fight against this.

The trio are being punished after Lazio players Thomas Strakosha, Lucas Leiva and Ciro Immobile all returned inconsistent Covid-19 tests last year in October and November, and still featured in matchday squads.
