Genoa’s relegation from Italy’s top division to the third division for match-fixing has been confirmed by the country’s foootball tribunal.

The League Appeals Court also confirmed the five-year ban handed to Genoa president Enrico Preziosi by the disciplinary commission last week.

Genoa were found guilty of fixing their final game last season against Venezia. Genoa won 3-2 and earned promoted from Serie B to Serie A after a 10-year absence from the top league.

Genoa have also been docked three points from next season.

Treviso of Serie B are expected to replace Genoa in the first division, but the league has yet to confirm that.
