Scandal delays Serie A start by fortnight

The start of the 2006-07 Serie A campaign has been put back until the weekend of September 9-10, the Italian Football League have announced.

Serie A and Serie B were scheduled to begin on August 27, but both programmes will now start a fortnight later due to the repercussions of Italy's recent match-fixing scandal.

Juventus have lodged appeal with the Italian Olympic Committee (CONI) against the sanctions imposed on them, and Fiorentina and Lazio are expected to follow suit.

The football league announcement will be seen as a preventative measure as CONI may not reach their verdict until August 24-25.
