Juventus midfielder Nicolo Fagioli is under investigation for possible betting violations on illegal platforms and risks being suspended for up to three years if found guilty.

According to La Stampa newspaper, this is part of an investigation by the Turin Prosecutor’s Office regarding gambling through illegal online platforms.

Investigators have scanned access, data and transactions and Fagioli has emerged as one of the suspected bookies already under investigation.

The Italian Football Federation (FIGC) is said to have been aware of the situation since August 30.


Prosecutor Giuseppe Chine has also opened an investigation, following a report by the player’s lawyers who informed the Italian Football Federation of the ongoing investigation by the Turin Prosecutor.

Article 24 of the Sports Law Code claims that professional footballers are prohibited from betting on ‘official events organized by FIGC, UEFA and FIFA’ and ‘may not place or accept bets, directly or indirectly’.

If Fagioli is found guilty of gambling on official football matches, he could be fined more than €25,000 and banned for up to three years.
