The four teams embroiled in Italy’s match-fixing scandal could learn their fate at some point in the next 24 hours.
Juventus, Lazio, Milan and Fiorentina have been accused of influencing referee appointments and could be relegated from Serie A, with the public prosecutor recommending that champions Juventus be relegated to Serie C.
Once the verdict is announced, the clubs will have three days to appeal to the Federal Court.
The FIGC must hand Uefa the lists of teams which will be involved in European competitions by 25 July.
Euphoria surrounding Italy’s World Cup win has prompted calls for the clubs to be offered an amnesty.
“Let’s do what they did in ancient Rome: whoever has given us prestige and dignity should be treated differently, as one who has done something exemplary,” said Italy’s Justice Minister Clemente Mastella.
Former Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi, owner of Milan, suggested: “We can’t penalise the fans. The individuals should be punished, not the clubs.”
However, Italian Football Federation chief investigator Francesco Borrelli said there would be no special treatment.
“I believe the disciplinary procedure should have no connection with the victory,” said Borrelli.
“If we say that a victory should lead to indulgence, then surely a defeat would have brought more extreme measures of severity.
“We are therefore talking about two different things.”
The tribunal in Rome is investigating claims that the clubs through their officials tried to influence the outcome of matches by interfering with the appointment of match officials.
In May transcripts were published of telephone conversations between former Juventus general manager Luciano Moggi and Italian Football Association officials, discussing refereeing appointments in the 2004-05 season.
