Juventus withdraws appeal to civil court

TURIN, Italy -- Juventus withdrew its appeal to a civil court Thursday in the Italian match-fixing scandal.

Juventus may seek arbitration before the Italian Olympic Committee, with the aim of having its point-penalty reduced.

A sports tribunal stripped Juventus of its last two Serie A titles and relegated the club to the second division. A sports appeals court on July 25 reduced Juventus' points penalty from 30 to 17, but upheld the club's demotion.

Four other Italian clubs involved in the match-fixing scandal received points penalties, but were not demoted.

Juventus said in a statement Thursday that it was confident that it would be "treated significantly better" in the next level of sports justice.

Last week, the Turin powerhouse appealed to an administrative court in Rome. FIFA threatened to suspend World Cup champion Italy and all Italian clubs from international competition if Juventus went ahead with the move.
